One night, Bear looked up at the sky and thought, “Wouldn’t it be nice to give the moon a birthday present?”

But Bear didn’t know when the moon’s birthday was, or what to get him.

So he climbed a tall tree to have a little chat with the moon.

“Hello, Moon!”

“Maybe I’m too far away,” thought Bear, “and the moon cannot hear me.”

“Now I am much closer to the moon,” thought Bear.
“Hello!”

This time his own voice echoed off one of the other mountains. “Hello!”

“Oh, boy!” he thought. “I’m talking to the moon.”

“Tell me, when is your birthday?”
“Tell me, when is your birthday?”

“Well, it just so happens that my birthday is tomorrow!”
“Well, it just so happens that my birthday is tomorrow!”

“What do you want for your birthday?”
“What do you want for your birthday?”

“I would like a hat.”
“I would like a hat.”

“Oh, goody!” thought Bear. “Now I know what to get the moon for his birthday.”

“Good-bye!”
“Good-bye!”


That night Bear put the hat up in a tree where the moon could find it.

“Hurray! It fits just right!”

“So the moon got me a hat, too!”

“Wait!”

“Hello!”
“Hello!”

“I lost the beautiful hat you gave me.”
“I lost the beautiful hat you gave me.”

“That’s okay. I still love you!”
“That’s okay. I still love you!”

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY!”
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY!”
