Dido, the Dancing Bear: His Many Adventures

by Richard Barnum

One of the Kneetime Animal Stories for children, Dido the Dancing Bear may seem unethical today, but when it was written in 1916, such spectacles were a relatively common and "harmless" entertainment, In this story, we follow Dido as he is caught, trained and put in a circus. Along the way, he meets several other animals from the series.
