Story Time Reading

Bears House of Books by Poppy Bishop & Alison Edgson

This is a beautifully illustrated book that’s wonderful to read aloud. Hedgehog, Rabbit, Fox and Mouse are friends who love stories, but only have one worn out book. They find a new book under a bush, but it belongs to Bear, and he’s written “KEEP YOUR PAWS OFF!” inside. The friends slip into Bear’s home whilst he’s out to return the book, but soon become absorbed in all the stories they find there. Bear arrives home to discover them, and isn’t at all happy that his library rule “No Sticky Paws and No Jelly Sandwiches” has been broken. A love of reading brings everyone together, with a happy ending:  “Books are wonderful to read alone, but even better when shared”.
