Mr. Bear reads the inspiring work of Micaela Arenas, a 15-year-old writer and activist. Whether a poem on borders, a speech on building bridges, or a book about the power of story and imagination, her writing conveys the infinite potential of words. Also featuring a trip to Miss Mousie’s Apothekarium, where you’ll get an earful on onion tricks, garlic oil, and ground ivy!
