Once there was a bear named Crafty Bear. He has a friend, Chipmunk, and they find a book that some campers left that was a book of the world with a map of the world. They saw some pictures of a kangaroo and they decided they wanted to see the kangaroo. Crafty Bear happens to be a genius engineer and they decide to build a submarine. His bear friends help him build the submarine, but the bears are too scared to go into the submarine-- except for Crafty Bear. His chipmunk friends are wild and crazy, and they're ready for adventure. So, Crafty Bear designs this amazing submarine that has lots of windows and is the shape of a shark to fool the sharks. It has a big metal tree inside in the shape of a den for chipmunks, so the chipmunks just moved all their stuff in…They go on adventures-- the Marianas Trench, and down in the trench they discover treasure that has four crystals that tell you where the lost city of Atlantis is.
At school, Little L. drew this with Crafty Bear in mind:
|"This is the map. There is a red lava pit and a magical blue lake. You have to follow the green trail, then the red trail, then the purple trail, then this trail."|
|"You follow all the right trails and it leads your o the room full of magic keys. See, there are lots of them."|
I watched while Little L. worked on her Lego submarine. "L., can I videotape the Crafty Bear story?"
"Argh! Let me just tell you. Don't videotape it!"
So… no video tonight. But now you know all about Crafty Bear and his band of adventurous chipmunk friends.
