I Have a Little Problem
o: 3+ (: 35'
“I have a little problem,” the bear told the inventor, “Could you please help…?” But the inventor does not let the bear finish the sentence. He knows exactly what he needs: a pair of wings. A worried bear goes on, walks from store to store and every time he gets something he obviously doesn’t need – a scarf, a bottle of medicine, a hat, a jar of air honey, boots… Everyone knows exactly what the bear needs, and no one listens to him. Until he gets out of town to the top of a hill where he meets a tiny fly.
This is a story about loneliness that we all know well. Kids may know best what it’s like when no one really listens to you and when everyone knows what’s best for you. At the same time, it is also the story about today’s world, which fills us with material things that are supposed to make us happy. Above all, it’s a story about friendship. Because sometimes you just need someone to hear and understand you, even if it’s just a fly.
