Kelly Wheeler her niece made a promise that she would complete this book in memory of her Aunt Margie so that she can show the children a book of inspiration and laughter Margaret Wentink will be remembered in her stories and her poetry; she is dearly missed by her family and animals.
Margie only had time to finish chapter one, two and half of chapter three that is where Kelly came in and put pen to paper and decided to finish Benjamin’s story.

The alarm clock loudly woke up the whole Bear family, Mummy Bear was a bit angry with Daddy Bear; it was five o’ clock in the morning. “Why did you set the alarm clock for so early on a Sunday?” asked Mummy Bear, in a very grumpy voice. “Oh, good morning my dear, I am sorry about the alarm clock, but today I am taking Benjamin fishing”.
As soon as Daddy Bear had finished talking to Mummy Bear, they heard a gentle tap on their bedroom door, ‘come in” called Mummy Bear and in came Benjamin Bear. He was all dressed and waiting to go. “Come on daddy, why are you not ready yet?” asked Benjamin Bear “I will be ready in a little while my son” said Daddy Bear.
Mummy Bear got out of bed and put on her housecoat “I should go and make you men a little breakfast and some snacks for you throughout the day?” “Come along Benjamin, lets go to the kitchen” said Mummy Bear.
Mummy Bear started by cooking some bacon, eggs and some toast, which Benjamin knew he and Daddy Bear would enjoy. “Come and eat your breakfast” said Mummy Bear and at that same moment Daddy Bear came into the kitchen to eat his breakfast.
“Is there any breakfast for me” asked Daddy Bear “Of course there is, come and eat before it gets cold” said Mummy Bear with a little smile on her face, poor daddy Bear thought that he was in trouble for waking Mummy Bear up so early.
Now Mummy Bear was preparing their picnic basket, she was carefully packing some cold meats, bread rolls, salads and some cheese; she also added two large bottles of lemonade. “That should help you throughout the day” said Mummy Bear who also packed some iced water.
They were almost ready to leave, Benjamin Bear carried the fishing rods and worms to the car and Daddy Bear carried the heavy picnic basket, Mummy Bear gave each of them a kiss and off they went. “Drive carefully and have a lovely day” Mummy Bear called out to them, they all waved and they boys were off.
Mummy Bear returned to the kitchen where she sat down with a cup of tea and a slice of toast. “What am I going to do today” pondered Mummy Bear who thought that she clean Benjamin’s bedroom as she had the whole day to herself. Benjamin is normally a very tidy boy but Mummy Bear thought that it would not hurt to look. Mummy Bear finished her toast and her tea first.
Daddy and Benjamin Bear had just arrived at the dam where they were busy setting up their fishing rods and everything else which they would be needing throughout the day.
Benjamin Bear was so excited he could hardly wait to throw his fishing line into the water, “well” said Daddy Bear “I think we have everything that we shall need for the day so now we can sit on our fishing stools and start fishing.”
Daddy and Benjamin both cast their rods into the water, sat back to relax while they waited for the fish to bite onto the worms that they had placed on the hooks. It seemed like they were there all day when suddenly Benjamin’s rod began to pull and jump up and down. “Look” shouted Benjamin “I think I have caught a fish” Benjamin said while he pulled in his line.
~ Please note that this book is being published so come back soon to make sure Benjamin gets his catch of the day.
