SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT:

Who Wet My Pants? is about a bear named Reuben. Reuben arrives at his campsite with donuts for all of his friends, when he realizes his pants are wet. Reuben immediately starts asking his friends who wet his pants. The other animals deny wetting Reuben’s pants, and try to make him feel okay about wetting his pants. They say that it can happen to anyone and that they used to wet their pants too. Even so, Reuben still won’t admit he wet his pants. He says that all he did that day was help out at a lemonade stand, walk by a waterfall, and take a nap with his hand in a fish tank. At the end of the story, Reuben declares that his pants must be wet because his pants are broken and have sprung a leak.

Students will laugh out loud when they hear this story about a bear who can’t admit he wet his pants.
