This week we will share the story Bear and Chook: When I'm a Big Bear, by Lisa Shanahan and Emma Quay.

This book is all about what Bear want to be when he grows up, and the story follows his trials and tribulations as he explores every possibility.

Discuss what your child would like to be when he/she grows up?
    Encourage your child to draw and write and act out their ideas.

Count how many things bear wanted to be.
    Can you think of any more things Bear could be?
    How many ideas do you have now?

Retell the story together.
