Mrs. Bear opens it at once and reads it out loud:

“Now, I wonder who that’s from?” says Mrs. Bear with a smile. “There’s a paw mark at the bottom.”

Just then Little Bear sees something outside the window.

“Look,” he says, “there’s a jar of honey walking up the garden path.”

Mrs. Bear goes to the window. Somebody is carrying the biggest jar of honey she has ever seen. It has in large letters on the label.


Little Bear opens the door and the jar of honey walks in. “Daddy!” says Little Bear. “It’s YOU!”

“My Valentine,” says Mrs. Bear. And she gives Mr. Bear a big hug.
