Quite frankly, we couldn’t agree more!
Taking a bear to school is not the advice we would give to any discerning young person or indeed old person for that matter.
And ‘Never Take A Bear To School‘ illustrates why with a rhythmic cadence and unique, texture-filled illustrations.
As a new academic year looms, this would provide a perfect read for those concerned about taking the big step to school.
Facing a day alone at school can be a highly daunting task, but this humorous and joyful story will quash those fears for any new starter.
Mark Sperring’s jaunty rhyming read makes for a light-hearted look at what to expect when you start school and how you’ll appreciate those you leave behind more.
The rhyme keeps this story moving at a pace and one which will delight emerging readers everywhere.
Coupled with Britta Teckentrup‘s unique illustrations full of texture and character, there’s a lot to love about this picture book.
Teckentrup’s gentle mix of monochromatic images and primary-coloured backgrounds, provide an empathetic setting to this cheery tale.
A definite must-read for any young person transitioning to school.

My eldest starts school in September. I must add this to our collection.
