Sheena O'connell This is a heart warming book about a little bear that says no matter what,he will always live with his Mum. Mum informs him of all life's possibilities 'you could become an ambulance driver or a footballer'. The little bear insists that he will always come back and live with his Mum even when he is grown up. Mum tells the little bear 'that's just fine'. Then shes tells him that he might become a daddy bear one day. The little bear thinks strongly about this and then replies 'if that's the case I'll come back and live next door to Mum. This is a great book for nursery, reception and ks1 pupils. It deals with the attachment issues children experience while coming to school and growing up. It could be a great book to discuss with a class and ideal for a circle time activity.
