Little Bear's Adventure's
First Stop Washington
I had a pretty good time while I was in Missouri. First I bought a souvenir in Washington, Missouri.
Washington is the Corncob Pipe Capital of the World!
A Good Read
Then when I got to Hannibal, I pulled out my all time favorite book. If you have never heard of Mark Twain, he was a very good writer. I like his books.
A Book and A View!
Then I took my book and my pipe (which is very cozy for lounging) and I climbed to the top of a hill with a view of the Mississippi River. I'll bet when Mark Twain lived in Hannibal, way back over 100 years ago, he probably sat in this very spot. He probably sat here, smoking a corncob pipe, thinking up stories about Tom Sawyer.
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
