Bear Hands, Bear Feet
On his birthday, Rowan wishes to look more like everyone else. But when nothing happens, and Rowan finds that he still has Bear Hands, it will take a kitten in a tree, a girl with Bear Feet, and a colony of bees to help him discover that being "different" can have sweet benefits.
First 150 Words:
On his birthday, Rowan wished to look more like everyone else. But nothing happened.
Instead of his wish, he received 5 balloons, a ukelele, and a pair of mittens knitted by grandma.
Disappointed with his presents, Rowan stomped outside hoping to find someone to play with.
But everyone seemed busy doing things that Rowan couldn't.
He felt frustrated. He felt furious! He felt ferocious! HE FELT….meow!
Rowan looked up and saw a small kitten high up in a tree. "Help!" cried a girl in a nearby treehouse.
"That kitten is stuck!"
Rowan easily climbed the tree, rescuing the kitten.
Once he climbed down, he was surprised to meet the girl from the treehouse, who said her name was Melina.
"You are SUCH a good climber" said Melina.
Rowan had never thought about it before. He WAS a good climber.
Rowan and Melina talked all day about the good and bad things about their bear hands and feet.
