1 sentence description:
This story is about Morty the bear who has broken everything in his home and seeks out to find a "better" home, only to find that none are to his liking until he returns back to his own home where he fixes up everything and has a newfound appreciation for what he already had.
Curriculum connection:
Predicting and questioning are evoked by this story while the students are taken throughout various interesting settings while the bear is in search of a new home.
