Chapter OneIt was springtime in Bear Country, and Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear were thinking about Easter. Actually, they were thinking about Easter candy. They loved Easter candy—there were so many different kinds! They were even thinking about it on their way to Sunday school one fine spring morning.
"My favorite Easter candy is chocolate bunnies," said Brother.
"My favorite is marshmallow chicks," said Sister.
"Jelly beans!" cried Honey Bear.
Their Sunday school teacher, Missus Ursula, overheard them. "I like the black jelly beans best," she smiled. "But, you know, there's much more to Easter than chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks, and jelly beans—black or otherwise."
"Sure, we know that," said Brother.
"Sure," said Sister.
"Sure!" said Honey.
"Oh?" said Missus Ursula. "Then why don't you tell the class all about Easter?"
"Well," said Brother, scratching his head, "it's about stuff in the Bible."
"Yeah," agreed Sister. "Bible stuff."
"Stuff!" nodded Honey.
"Hmmm," said Missus Ursula. "Maybe it's time we learned a little more about this 'Bible stuff.' It happens that the cubs in the next class are about to put on a play called The Easter Story."
"Can we watch, Missus Ursula?" the cubs asked.
"Just what I was about to suggest," she said.
