Yoon’s digital illustrations use bold black lines, simple shapes, and bright colors to focus attention on the characters, and Bear’s feelings are evident. His classmates include a lamb, a moose, and a panda (who eats snack with chopsticks). Going to school doesn’t mean leaving childhood behind; stuffed lovies have a place still.

Synopsis

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.
