Where are the bears To come out and play? The little bears are ready to play in the snow. But — oh, no! Their sled is too small! It’s not as much fun to go sledding only two at a time, but what can they use to carry them all? Luckily, Big Brown Bear has an idea — and it starts with a belly flop!

In this story, the little bears talk about sharing the sled as only two can fit on it at a time. Then the Big Brown Bear has an idea, and becomes a new sled they can all fit on! It’s a cute story about sledding, but I felt like the flow of the text was just a little off.
