My Brown Bear Barney by Dorothy Butler and Elizabeth Fuller

Nothing like a book with repetition to get a child reading. My Brown Bear Barney by Dorothy Butler is a is delightful book which is based on the many common experiences children will have with their beloved soft toy and what goes on in an ordinary household. It looks at outings in the pram, grocery shopping, gardens, visits to the beach and visits to the grand parents, bedtimes, and starting school. It's a book about growth from being a toddler to starting school and that precious relationship a child often develops with his or her favourite toy. Young children will readily identify with the every day objects depicted in the book and the attachment they may have to their own special friend.  Below is a link to the reading of the book by Anne Hartshome:
