Worth reading 😎

A super sweet back to school story for preschoolers and kindergartners headed off for their very first day of school.

Synopsis

Little Bear is worried about starting school. It’s a big change, and he’s scared. He has to be away from Mama Bear, and what if he doesn’t make any friends? Luckily, Mama Bear knows how to make him feel better. With the help of some very special bracelets, Mama Bear helps Little Bear to understand the importance of making a connection with someone. This charming storybook is perfect for kids just starting school, and carries a message we could all stand to remember: When we offer affection, we can make a connection. Let this book be the start of something new: a tradition of love and connection with your child that they will carry with them throughout their lives.

The book comes with two red string bracelets.

A super sweet back to school story for preschoolers and kindergartners headed off for their very first day of school. The little Bear is worried about the first day of school. Mama Bear writes a note with two red bracelets, one for each of them. I love the encouraging way Mama Bear talks about starting something new and the idea of bracelets is a sweet concrete way to offer comfort to a young child. I can see a lot of little kindergartners wearing a bracelet from their Mama's on the first day inspired by this story.
