It's Baby Bear's first day of school and he's very excited! Papa Bear drops Baby Bear off at the Storybook Community School and tells him that he loves him and will be back after school to pick him up. At school, Baby Bear meets and becomes friends with Hansel and Gretel, Jack and Jill, Little Red Riding Hood, and other storybook characters. While Baby Bear is having fun making friends and learning new things, he often misses his family throughout the day. Baby Bear wonders what they are doing and wishes that they could be there to share in the excitement of his first day in school. When Papa Bear picks Baby Bear up, Baby Bear tells him that while he had a great time at school, he also really missed his family. Papa Bear reassures Baby Bear by telling him that it's okay to miss the family. He tells Baby Bear to just think about the time they get to see each other again at the end of the day, and how he will tell his family about all the great things he did in school!
