Is The Rainbow Bear real?
Of course, he is! Come let’s meet him and his immediate family. What? Friends are family too.
Our good Rainbow Bear, is very, ahem, colorful. He eats bananas by the dozen, hugs when he is happy, and can sleep for days. He is also the reigning champion in the forest-wide ‘Best Fur’ contest. Oh, and he doesn’t like Wednesdays. His best friends are two: Turtle, Ms. Tattle-tale and our dear Elegant Elephant.
Turtle, Ms. Tattle-tale, must carry this name for the full year. As you may imagine, she was very upset when she received this title in the Annual Forest Social. Otherwise, she loves to nibble on grass, likes to ride on our dear Elegant Elephant’s back and has a great giggle. With that smile, she sure is a poser!
How to best introduce our dearest friend, the Elegant Elephant? He is so elegant; it became his name! He has the kindest heart, the most graceful walk, and is a complete mush machine. Forest folks come to him to seek counsel, and ask for help. He is a little sensitive about his tail, so please never bring that up in conversation.
We are excited to introduce to the rest of the tribe. Come on in on the journey!
