Good morning, Country Bear. What s in the bowl? You want to borrow some apples? Certainly! That's what good neighbors are for. He does borrow some apples, then the sugar, an egg, even cinnamon and butter. Country Bear s neighbor is generous, but soon her cupboard is empty and her patience is gone too. Just in time Country Bear comes to the rescue with a surprise of his own that shows that good neighbors come in all shapes and sizes.
