Whatever Next by Jill Murphy

 

This is a lovely story about a family of Bears. Baby Bear has a fantastic imagination and wants to travel to the moon. He finds all of the equipment he needs around his home and sets off up the chimney. He luckily arrives home just in time for bath time and we are not too sure that his mummy believes where he has been!

The Beetles class love this story and enjoy reading it over and over again. 

They told us ...

"My favourite bit was when they had a picnic on the moon!"

"He went to the moon in a cardboard box, that is so silly."

"It was funny that he had wellies on as space boots."

Perfectly Norman by Tom Percival

 

This is a great story about a little boy called Norman. He is perfectly normal until one day he grows his own wings. He tries to hide his wings from his parents and his friends but this makes him so unhappy. He eventually reveals them and he is so glad that he does. It is a story that soothes worries and shows us all that it is great to be different!

 

The Ladybird children read this story regularly at story time and tell us ...

"I love it when everyone flies at the end because the wings are so colourful."

"He tries to hide his wings but he doesn't need to. He doesn't want his mum and dad to see his beautiful wings because he thought his wings looked weird."

"His mum and dad told him to take his coat off!"
