Bears in the Forest Synopsis

Welcome to the wonderful world of bears, told through story and song with Stephen Tompkinson. Deep in a forest cave, a mother bear gives birth to two tiny cubs. As they grow, she teaches them how to climb and fish, and all the things they need to know to survive in the wild. For one day, during the second summer, they will leave her to find homes of their own. In the accompanying CD (approx.15 minutes), actor Stephen Tompkinson explores the wonderful world of bears through information, music and story.
