A cute story about sharing, and letting others use items when you are not using them.

The big bear is in an arm chair. The little bear claims that it is his, since he was in it first. But the big bear is in it now, so it is his, right? The two bear go back and forth, and end up working out plans to get each other out of the chair, until they no longer really care about sitting in the chair so much as keeping the other out of the chair. End the end they both decide it isn't worth it and go off to play. Then another bear comes along and claims the chair.

Along the same lines as other books in this series, this is a great example of sharing and how it works in the real world. This would be a good book to do in a story time with two people, or with puppets.
