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 like 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 Bunny series from beloved, bestselling author-illustrator Salina Yoon tackles big themes like starting school and being independent, even in scary new situations.

Sweet story to calm school fears.

“Bear thought school would be lots of fun. But something—or someone—was missing.” A story about Bear's first day of school and the emotional hurdle Bear faces after leaving Floppy, his stuffed bunny, at home. A perfect book to share with preschool or kindergarten children with first day jitters (and loved stuffie friends).
