As they open their last gifts under the tree, Esme and Bear discover one present. The tag reads, “For Little Bunny Boo-Boo, Love Santa.” The two of them bundle up and set out in search of the intended recipient. Some helpful signs lead the way as they trek through treacherous terrain, endure tumultuous gale winds, and wade through deep snow. When Bear pleads to turn around, Esme encourages him, and together they prevail, finally reaching their destination. Bunny Boo-Boo graciously invites them inside, and when she opens the gift, a special handwritten note from Santa says he sent her the present she wanted most: a new friend.
