Opening:

Little Honey Bear couldn’t sleep. Through his bedroom window the moon was shining as bright as day. The snowy woods glimmered in the brilliant moonlight. And surely the moon was smiling at him.

Synopsis: Little Honey Bear and two friends set off to visit the friendly moon, following the shining silvery moonpath they discover one winter’s night. But suddenly, the path gets steeper, the wind grows colder, and the moon disappears. Alone in the dark, the three friends worry that they might not find their way home.

A delightful and magical story of friendship.

I love how magical this story is, a treat for everyone. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads on Sunday!
