It has been unusually quiet in the Bear Room .
Doors are locked .
The kettle has been silent and no friends have visited for quite some time.
Our family of bears are very subdued at the moment, confused by the world that has greeted them at the end of their winter hibernation.
Apparently there is a nasty virus outside that could make little bears very sick indeed, so,
on waking from their lovely snugly sleep, well rested and looking forward to catching up with friends and ready to plan lots of new adventures, they discovered that not only can they not go outside they can't invite friends to play either !
No problem for the bears living in The Bear Room but, oh my goodness , terrible news for little Bertie Button !
No visits to or from Miss Beatrice Bear = a very sad little bear....
He is lucky to have lots of toys but playing alone is just not the same as laughing with friends.
But then Andrea and Liz had an idea ..........
.......and Bertie and Beatrice shared a very special treat .
What a difference friends make !
Liz, Andrea and all the Book Cover Bears send love to all our friends at this difficult time.
.......... I don't remember you asking for a biscuit !
