In “The Everywhere Bear” by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Rebecca Cobb we get to take a look in a school. We visit Class One, led by Mrs. McAllister. Not only are there a bunch of great kids in the class, they have a very special friend- the Everywhere Bear. He sits on a shelf and he gets to go and have adventures with each kid. On one journey, he accidentally gets lost and we experience him going on an adventure that no one could have predicted.
One of the things I appreciate most is that each child is different. There are a variety of characters to relate to, each with differing appearance and hobbies. I really like that the Everywhere Bear gets to play with each of his friends differently. The text features a lot of rhyming which makes the story quite fun and I feel like it’s very encouraging to try new things.
The illustrations are great! They give the readers a great view about the town and community. From the classroom to the sea, there are all sorts of brilliant scenes for us to view. We get see a lot of the action and, even though he’s only a little bear, the Everywhere Bear sure goes on an amazing adventure!
Overall, I really enjoyed it. It’s a lovely little story with literal highs and lows. I’m sure that any child will love this!
I was lucky enough to receive a free copy of this book thanks to Hip Little One & Pan Macmillan, but this is still an honest review.

As soon as the alien ship had landed in the field,
I stopped noticing the world around me.
I had my eyes firmly locked on the space that looked like a door
and I waited for the unfamiliar beings to exit their craft.

I splattered some paint onto the canvas and
knew that I could sell this work for a fortune.
If only I could bamboozle some art idiot to buy a work for $10,000,
even though I’d only spent ten minutes on it.

My phone fell to the ground and I lost sight of it in the small layer of fog at my feet.
Though I could no longer see it, I heard the awful crack and knew the object was ruined.

The moth’s wings were torn and it could not fly very well.
It flipped and flopped through the air,
finally coming to land on a flower that was just as ragged.

After I had downloaded my new girlfriend, I looked through her files.
I was immediately disgusted by the mass of men who had used her before.
She would need a very good clean.
