Excerpt

CHAPTER 1

Early one morning as the sun began to smile down on Color Friends County, Black Bear awoke to the sound of his alarm. He stretched his long black arms into the air, placed his big bear feet onto the cold hard earth, and hopped out of his warm bed. Black Bear brushed his huge pointy teeth, washed his furry black body, and put on his big bear pocket pants. He was so nervous because it was his first day of preschool. Black Bear ate his big bear breakfast and then began his journey to learning.

He walked through the green pasture and saw the brightly colored flowers. He stopped and pulled one out of the ground. As he placed the flower up to his nose a beautiful pink butterfly landed right on his hand. Black Bear then asked the pink butterfly,

"Pink Butterfly, Pink Butterfly, where are you going? Would you like to come with me to preschool this morning?"

Pink Butterfly smiled and replied, "What will we do at this place called preschool?"

Black Bear said, "We will sing our A-B-C's and count our 1-2-3's. We will write and we will play then sing songs all day!" Pink Butterfly became so excited. She agreed to go to preschool with Black bear.

Together they began their journey. They walked through Never Ending Field and made it to the Rippling Brook stream. There they stopped and listened to the crashing of the clear blue water from the waterfall up above. As Black Bear placed his huge bear feet into the water, a green frog jumped off of a lily pad right onto Black Bear's paw! "Ribbit!" Black bear then asked the green frog,

"Green Frog, Green Frog, where are you going? Would you like to come with us to preschool this morning?"

Green Frog smiled and replied, "What will we do at this place called preschool?"

Black Bear and Pink Butterfly said, "We will sing our A-B-C's and count our 1-2-3's. We will write and we will play then sing songs all day!" Green Frog became so excited. He agreed to go to preschool with Black Bear and Pink Butterfly.

They began their journey once again. They crossed the clear blue stream and walked and walked until they came to Country Color Friends Farm. On this farm they saw a beautiful red barn. Black Bear, Pink Butterfly, and Green Frog went into the red barn. There they saw some beautiful golden eggs! Black bear walked to the nest and began to pick up one of the golden eggs. All of a sudden, the egg cracked and out came a red rooster! "Cock-a-doodle- do." Black Bear asked the red rooster,

"Red Rooster, Red Rooster, where are you going? Would you like to come with us to preschool this morning?"

Red rooster smiled and replied, "What will we do at this place called preschool?"

Black Bear, Pink Butterfly, and Green Frog said, "We will sing our A-B-C's and count our 1-2-3's. We will write and we will play then sing songs all day!"

Red Rooster became so excited. He agreed to go to preschool with Black Bear, Pink Butterfly, and Green Frog.
