THREE CHEERS FOR HIS
MAJESTY KING CHARLES III
ON THE OCCASSION OF HIS CORONATION 6TH MAY 2023
FROM ALL AT BOOK COVER BEARS
It is unusually quite in the little Railway Cottage were Bertie Button lives with his mum and dog Ollie.
The delightful sound of mischievous giggles and the not so delightful sound of footballs bouncing off walls, dishes breaking as plates of cookies are dropped on the floor and Whoopie Cushions causing unsuspecting guests to jump, have not been heard for quite sometime and Bertie's mum is worried.
Now, we all know that it is normal to worry
when Bertie is quiet, because we have learnt the hard way that when Bertie is quiet he is usually planning something naughty ...... but not this time..... Bertie Button has lost his smile and is a very sad little bear.
It seems Bertie is missing someone much more than any of us had realised.
His best friend, Beatrice Bear, has been on the road with her mum, Liz, travelling far and wide in their mobile workshop, sharing their wonderful textile skills far and wide,
for, what seems to a lonely little bear, a
very long time.
Of course all of the Book Cover Bears have been missing Liz and Beatrice but living in the Bear Room they have had each other for company and, as we all know, friends make difficult days easier.
to put our thinking caps on
if we can make
Bertie smile again
" If we feel sad we just need to remember that we are the Book Cover Bear family and that means we will always be special to each other and always be part of a very special family where ever we go ! "
( But if you still feel a little sad sometimes I would recommend you try thinking about Wiggles wiggling his ears without laughing)
Our bears travel far and near and we love to have a cosy cocoon created for them and all their documents and treasures , Sheep wool is just perfect for that - just like the book covers they were named after. Beatrice found the laying out of the wool difficult with her paws but she just loved the wetting of the wool. She really is a very clever bear .Look out for Beatrice in the video below which shows the actual book covers being made
There is an old proverb that states we should never judge a book by its cover.
Today we learnt how wise that proverb is ..... especially when concerning a Book Cover Bear !
Yesterday Bertie Button was discovered in suspicious circumstances. It was quickly assumed he had been rather naughty as apart from a lot of crumbs around his mouth and paws there were no signs of anything left to share.
He would not explain what was going on .... even when sent to bed early !
How wrong we were !
Little Bertie Button had been anything but naughty !
He had heard on the radio that this weekend was a very special one indeed. Our wonderful Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, was celebrating her Platinum Jubilee and Bertie wanted to throw a surprise tea party for his friends in recognition of such an historical event......and to eat lots of cake of course !
Bertie can be a mischievous and naughty little bear but he is also very thoughtful and kind so remember.....don't judge a book by it's cover !
( As for all the crumbs we found him covered in yesterday Bertie has assured me that he was just making sure that everything was yummy enough to share with his friends ! )
THREE CHEERS FOR HER
MAJESTY QUEEN ELIZABETH II
ON THE OCCASSION OF HER PLATINIUM JUBILEE
FROM ALL AT BOOK COVER BEARS
When a certain little bear is unsupervised AND is suspiciously quiet it usually means only one thing........mischief !
Don't be fooled by his sweet little face and innocent expression !
Bertie had found his way into an unoccupied kitchen and quickly got busy, busy, busy ......
......... and messy, messy, messy !
But unusually for a normally very kind little bear Bertie didn't offer to share any of his baking with the other Book Cover Bears and no-one has been able to find where he might have hidden it. Here's hoping he didn't eat it all himself ........
Maybe we will find out what he has been up to tomorrow !
All across the land little bears are tucked up in bed dreaming of a magical sleigh being pulled through a star filled sky by nine handsome reindeer while hoping with all their hearts that the driver of the sleigh will pause long enough to leave a treat or two on his way past.
Even Bertie Button went to bed without argument !
Wishing all little bears everywhere a wonderful Christmas.
May all your dreams come true.
Beatrice loves to go for walks in the Argyll countryside and especially in the autumn months when the colours of the bracken and deer grass explode with bright colours.
On many of these walks Beatrice ( because of her size ) sees many more of the flora on the ground and is the perfect mushroom hunter to accompany Liz.
So many of our wonderful mushrooms can dye amazing colours and Liz teaches Beatrice what she knows about the mushrooms around Dalmally’s beautiful woodlands.
Identification is so important as many of our delightful mushrooms can make a bear and a human tummy ill.
Make sure you wash your hands well Beatrice but enjoy learning about the plant treasures in the Scottish Highlands.
Next to the sound of children laughing there is nothing that warms the soul more than the joy of friendship.
Recently we were lucky enough to share a lovely moment of friendship between two very new friends, Bertie Button and Miss Emily.
As you may remember Emily joined the Book Cover Bears just two weeks ago. Being such a sweet bear she was readily accepted by the others and quickly made friends with everyone but, much to the disappointment of her new friends, Emily, having only just finished unpacking found herself having to repack and bid everyone goodbye as she left to travel to her new home in America !
However despite all of her excitement and preparations for her travels she made time to fulfil the wishes of one particular little bear and she gathered the necessary measurements for a new outfit for Bertie....... now all we have to do is to try and stop Bertie getting over excited while he waits for his surprise. Wish us luck !
Wishing Emily a safe journey to her new home.
