“It’s a beautiful autumn day and ecobear Arc has decided to take Baby Bear Rosa, Zana the rabbit & Tilda the hedgehog for a walk alongside the canal and down to the riverside. He has asked his friends to keep an eye out when they pass the pecan nut trees – to spot if any of the nuts will be ready to collect soon.

Meanwhile, ecobears Marlie, Savreth & Berry Scout are in the garden, tidying up after last night’s camp fire. They are chatting and laughing about how much fun they had – looking up into the dark, night sky and seeing so many bright, twinkling stars. Occasionally one of them would be a shooting star. Then it became a game as to who would be next to see one – and to shout out ‘shooting star!’ first before the others.”
