Never Take A Bear To School by Mark Sperring & Britta Teckentrup (Orchard Books)

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.
