Hernando Bear had walked on ahead and found a lovely shady spot under a big tree. "I think this would be a good place to have our lunch. All those who think so too say 'Yes'" and a chorus of voices called out their agreement. Quickly the four bears and Shelley sat down in a circle on the grass. Theodore Bear took his backpack off of his back and placed it in front of him. He opened it and carefully took out his red spotted handkerchief, spreading it neatly on the grass like a tablecloth. He took out some little plates and mugs and passed them to Ferdinand Bear to hand out to the others. "What a good thing we brought one extra," Ferdinand said, "now we have one for Shelley too." Then Theodore began to unpack all the delicious food Merlena Bear had put in for lunch. Soon there was hardly any room left on the handkie and everyone was feeling very hungry.
