First they went to get a hat and the little bear took the big hat and the big bear took the small hat. The small bear put on the big hat and the big bear put on the small hat and they said "too small" is what the big bear said and the little bear said "too big" and it was covering his eyes and his nose. All that was showing on his face was his mouth and you could still see some hair from the top of the big bear's head 'cause the hat was too small. They switched and they both said "just right."
