What they say: Toby isn’t looking forward to starting his new school. It STINKS. And he’s worried he won’t make any friends. On his first day he explores with an alien, sails the seas with a pirate, and hunts dinosaurs… But still no friends. Unless… Were those friends after all?
What we say: “My twins are staring school in September so this was a great book to read to them. Easy to read, with beautiful illustrations, the book tells the story of Toby’s very first day at school…
The story makes it easy to explain to very young children that just because someone doesn’t necessarily say ‘I’m your friend’ doesn’t mean that they aren’t your friend.
I think any books that help to teach your child a little more about going to school are well worth reading during the summer holidays – and the fact that this one had dinosaurs in it, made it a favourite in my house!”
My Stinky New School is written by Rebecca Elliott and can be found at most good book shops and online at Amazon
