No stories stolen at Benhall for their book week this week but LOTS of books made for stories, collecting and writing :-) A sweet picture book received from the lovely Random House people by Anca Sandu about some different animal detectives on the trail of mission books for a young prince who can't sleep any more because his bedtime stories have VANISHED. Funny and charming illustrations and a sweet ending with a very valid reason for the books to have gone missing-if I had an assembly to do I may well use it for that reason but that's all I'm going to say because you should read it for yourself. For those VW nuts it also has a little Miss sunshine type van in it too.
Not sure the state of Suffolk schools is entirely down to what's going on in them actually. I've seen so many wonderful pictures of children dressed up for world book day, immersing themselves in imaginative activities this week and in lots of schools on my visits. Here's a selection of tremendous handmade books from Yr 2,3,4 and 5. Bears, beasts, maps and the story shack stamper out in force.
