“Fiona, are you ready to hear a story?”
“Ga mmmm Mma bbpppsst”
“Great! Here we go. Once there was a little girl named Fiona who went skipping along the forest trails of Sutton Island. She found a house with a very cozy Mama Bear lap on the back deck. She spent all morning basking in the cozy, sunshiny lap. Then, the Mama Bear gave Fiona some lunch. The carrots were juuusssst right, in her mouth, her hands, and all over her sweater.
“After that, Fiona was sleepy, so she went to sleep in a great big bed with a tempurpedic foam topper and a circle of pillows all around. Soon, an old woman came in and said, ‘Who’s that sleeping in my bed?’ But it was only Gramma Bear, so Fiona got to keep sleeping as long as she wanted.”
