3 Little Penguins and the Big Bad Polar Bear

Once upon a time there were three little penguins. Their mom and dad said, “Kids, you guys need a job because you have to make your own house.” “Yes, mom and dad.” The small penguin made a snow house. He got new toys. The next day the older brothers made a house out of brick and they could hear a knock at the door. “Who’s there?” “Your brother.” “Come in.”
They heard another knock. “Who’s there?” “The bear. But can I come in?” “Why?” “Because I want a friend.” “Okay. Do you want to be our friend?” “Yes.” “You may.”
