Bear In Space
Bear in Space is Deborah Abela’s latest book and is a beautiful picture book about making friends without compromising your passion. Deborah created the book based on a picture of a bear she saw Marjorie Crosby-Fairall draw when they were visiting the zoo together. From there they have created a beautiful story with a number of interesting facts thrown in for good measure.
Activities for this book are aimed at Pre-School and Kindergarten children and include matching facts, drawing a rocket ship and laying out the interior, making dot-to-dot space shapes, a hot chocolate handwriting activity as bear’s favourite drink is hot chocolate, identifying basic shapes and an art and craft rocket making activity from our good friends at Clever Patch.
