When a mother bear can't handle being parted from her little cub, her young son, Benno, gently reassures her and then kindly let's her spend part of the morning with him in his new classroom. A heartwarming role reversal book; perfect as a back-to-school read aloud and one that my three-year-old can't get enough of.

This new concept book, featuring Mac the plush apple with an adorable mini backpack, is perfect for talking with your kids about the normal process of nervous excitement when starting a new school year.
