“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
When Waldon Bear tells his teacher Mrs Hunter that he wants to be a bear, I don’t think she was quite expecting that!
“That’s impossible,” says his teacher, Mrs. Hunter. “Human children grow up to be human adults, not animals!”
Waldon’s mum tell him he can be whatever he wants to be and helps make him a bear costume to wear to school the next day. Much to his teachers dismay.
The message that we got from this story is that you don’t let anyone tell you cant be what you to be, and this is yet another great book from Julie Dweck with clear messages for the children, done in such a way that the story is engaging and also entertaining with great illustrations.
After reading this my son told me he want to be a Zombie! Not quite sure where that came from lol
At the end of the story as always, we have Julies fascinating bear facts and fun animal track quiz – I was quite bad at that lol
This book is available to purchase from 22nd October.
