Our pattern of the month is the Bear! There is something about bears that just make them so adorable even though they are among the most massive and powerful animals on earth. Polar bears are the largest and the sun bear is the smallest. Bears were honored in early civilizations. They were a symbol of power, strength and love. They care deeply about others – they will risk their lives to save a cub or a sibling.
