Praise for Jellybean Goes to School

A perfect tale for those starting school in the near future. Jellybean takes you on her first journey from home to her new school. On the way, she experiences a range of emotions from excitement to worry; feelings that all children have when they start school. The events in the story mirror a traditional school day to which children will be able to relate. Jellybean uses her imagination to bring her learning to life and soon realises that school is a fun place to be. So much so, that she is eager to go back the following day! This story supports many discussions with your child about their first day at school. The illustrations are bold and colourful and depict both features of everyday life and imagination. Children will be able to compare their feelings and school day with Jellybean's, and, in turn, develop an understanding of the world around them.
