Bear Hugs
If you like I can give you
A big bear hug.
It will make you feel snug
As a bug in a rug.
As soon as a bear hug
Comes your way,
Find yourself a good friend,
And give It Away!

Five Little Bears

Five little bears Heard a loud roar
One ran away
Then there were four!
Four little bears
Climbing up a tree
One slid down Then there were three!
Three little bears
Deciding what to do
One fell asleep
Then there were two!
Two little bears
Having lots of fun
One went home
Then there was one!
One little bear
Feeling all alone
Ran to his mother
Then there were none!
