Big Bear Was Not the Same

One day, something scary happens to Big Bear - he is caught in a forest fire. Although he is safe now, Little Bear can tell that Big Bear is not the same. He runs, roars, or freezes in fear when ordinary things happen in the woods that remind him of that traumatic day. How can Little Bear's big, strong, brave friend be so scared now? And how can Little Bear help him and be a good friend?
