THE BEAR ON THE DOORSTEP

The rabbit family loves the bear baby they find on their doorstep, but by the time Bear is a year old his affable clumsiness is wrecking their tidy little house and garden. For his first birthday, the rabbit parents build him his own bear-sized house; but after he moves it's lonely for bear and rabbits alike. Solution: attach Bear's house to the Rabbit home, and widen the space between rows in the garden so he can help without trampling the vegetables. Without a distinctive, endearing detail, the story is negligible and the pictures nondescript.
