Chapter 9 – The birth of Brunette and Grisou.

Filled with joy, they have not noticed that mother is lying down and that she is not moving. The little cubs are hungry and begin demanding milk.

-Mother, what is going on? What do we have to do?

-My darlings. You must both be brave. Your little brother had problems coming into this world and I feel weak. I will not be able to feed  and you will need to help me feed them.

-Mother, I am courageous. I will take care of the bear cubs with Canelle. You can count on us.

Backou and Canelle lick the cubs to clean them. They think of a name. It will be Brunette for the little sister and Grisou for the little brother.

Papa is back from fishing. All the family is together again and this evening, the bear family will celebrate joyfully the arrival of the new-borns.

Nursery rhyme: Jean Petit who dances.

Activity: We will also dance with Backou and Canelle to the music “bear dance”.
