Sleepy Bear Answers His Mail

Hi Boys and Girls,

I'm feeling much better! Now I can tell Moosey-Moose that I accept his apology. I didn't want to get him sick so I thought I should wait until I felt better.

One of my readers asked me if I read comic books. Yes! I love to read comic books. I like the Teen Titans, and Donald Duck. Which ones do you like to read?

Another reader asked me if I can plant more bulbs since last year the ones I planted didn't grow. I told Kathleen I want to try again but I have to wait for her to go to the plant store and buy some more. Maybe she will go this weekend. I'll ask her.

I'm glad you liked PINOCCHIO. I really liked it, too. I'm not sure what book to read next. I have to give that some thought. Do you have suggestions?

Well, I need to go now. I want to make myself a cup of hot chocolate with lots of whippy cream. YUM!

Sleepy Bear Gets Mail and a Gift!

Hi Friends,

Look at what I got!
Moosey-Moose gave me a Venus Fly Trap plant. I've been wanting one ever since I read about Judy Moody getting one. It's really cool! I've been watching it eat itsy bitsy flies.

Moosey-Moose also wrote a really nice letter to apologize for going to Portland and making me do all his chores. I think he is really sorry. I'm going to tell him that I accept his apology. I missed his friendship, even if he is sometimes a real rascal!
Bye for now,
Sleepy Bear

Sleepy Bear Has a Cold

Hi Friends,

I feel miserable. My head is all stuffy and I can't breathe out of my nose. And I can't stop sneezing. I will answer my mail tomorrow. Hopefully I will feel better.

Bye for now,

Seepy Bear Answers Some Mail

Hi Friends,

I want to try to answer the questions that some of you are asking me. If I don't answer yours, it's because my little bear brain didn't remember.

Natalie, I think you can by the book THE MIRACULOUS JOURNEY OF EDWARD TULANE at one of the big bookstores at the shopping mall. Sometimes the school book sales have it, too. I agree with you, it is a really great book. One of my favorites, too!

Someone asked me about the bulbs I tried to grow. Well, that didn't work out very good for me. You see, one day we had a really big wind storm and well, the wind blew the container over and all the dirt fell out and the bulbs fell out and rolled down the stairs. I tried to plant them again, but I think they got bonked around too much and then they didn't grow. I was very sad when that happened.

Well, that's it for now. I can't wait to read more comments from you. Have a great day!

Sleepy Bear's Book Club - PINOCCHIO

Hi Book Buddies,

Well, I read a few pages of A LONG WAY TO CHICAGO and then I read a few pages of PINOCCHIO. I decided that PINOCCHIO was "just right" for me. I hope you don't mind if we read PINOCCHIO first.

I read the first chapter today. I'm very curious about what Geppetto will do with the scrap of wood. Let's read chapter two tomorrow.

Bye for now,

Sleepy Bear

Sleepy Bear Needs to Choose a New Book!

Hi Book Buddies,

Well, I can't decide what to read first. Some boys and girls want to read A LONG WAY FROM HOME by Richard Peck. Some boys and girls want to read PINOCCHIO by Carlo Collodi. The first one is a Newberry Honor book. The second one is a classic.

I need to decide tomorrow so write to me to tell me which one we should read first.

Bye for now,

Sleepy Bear

Books! Books! Books!

Hi Book Buddies!

I'm excited to start our new book club! Here are a few books I thought of that we can choose from. Send me a comment to let me know which one you would like to read. And, if you have ideas, send those to me, too.

GINGER PYE by Eleanor Estes - This book is about the Pye family. Ginger is really the family dog until somone steals him!

MANIAC MAGEE by Jerry Spinelli - This book is about a boy who loves to run but he can do a lot more than just run. He has a very special talent!

A LONG WAY FROM CHICAGO by Richard Peck - This book is about Mary Alice and Joey who go to their Grandma's for a boring visit. Except when they get there, nothing is boring!

These all sound really great! I hope to hear from you soon.

Your book buddy,

Sleepy Bear
