Bears Home Front BrigadeLittle Schlepp didn't like watching buildings burn and people getting hurt while he was far, far away from home. So first thing when he got back to Albuquerque, he wanted to help. And the way to do that was to organize the "Bears Home Front Brigade."
Their job is to keep an eye out for terrorists and dangerous things. Then they can use their secret bear communication system to alert all the other bears in the Brigade. That means that a house or building protected by the Bears Home Front Brigade has lots and lots of bears protecting it.
Its a very difficult and dangerous times with big buildings getting attacked, planes being hijacked, and anthrax in the mail. Its important to know that the Bears Home Front Brigade is out there keeping a vigilant watch to keep our neighborhoods safe. Children everywhere can sleep better because their bears are looking out for them.
Setting up the Home Front Brigade wasn't as easy as you might think.
Of course, Big Brown Bear always guarded the house, so he was automatically
part of the Battalion. And Gussie's bear was pretty big, so she was
included. The BBC told how Britain was helping, so William was in
as well. And Little Brown Bear was definitely a bear in good standing
and almost as big as Big Schlepp.
So everyone was happy and Little Schlepp learned an important leason--that just because you look different or come from some place else doesn't mean you're not a good friend.
