Rap, bap, tap. Late one winter night, a boy wakes to strange noises. There's a bear in his yard! The bear leads him to a forest, where the snow has grown muddy and the trees have sprouted buds. The frost is melting --crinkle, crackle, CRACK. As they move deeper into the forest, the sounds grow louder. Rap, bap, tap, crunch, scrunch, crinkle, crackle, CRACK! In an explosion of spring ice shattering, a baby bird is born, and flowers burst forth. It's spring!
