New books for Primary – March 2012

A Bear and a Tree by STEPHEN MICHAEL KING

Ren knows that it’s almost time for Bear’s big sleep, but she needs just one more day with him.

One day to explore the winter together – the last of the coloured leaves, the snow as it floats and swirls to the ground, the sun and the moon and the stars.
One more day to play and dance and wonder.

From this much-admired children’s book creator comes a story of friendship and change, and of how precious time can be when we share it with those we love.
