What is included with this book?
It's Bear's very first day of school! He wants to be grown up, so he leaves his stuffed bunny Floppy at home along with all his familiar things. But being away from his best friend is hard--and the first day doesn't turn out quite how Bear wanted it to. Bear learns that the first day of school might not always be perfect, and being grown up doesn't have to mean giving up the things he loves.
This third book in the Bear and Floppy series from beloved, bestselling author-illustrator Salina Yoon tackles big themes like starting school and being independent, even in scary new situations. And Bear is sure to find even more fans in board--the format is the perfect fit for Salina's sweet art and simple text.
