Monkwood Reading Recommendations 📚

This week is Mrs Deakin’s book review week and she is happy to share this beautiful book:

Rabbit & Bear – Rabbit’s Bad Habits

Author: Julian Gough 

Illustrator: Jim Field

“This book was recommended to me by Mrs Whitehead who told me how much she has loved reading this book with her little girl. I had never read the book before but thanks to Mrs Whitehead, now I have! I loved the book that much that now I am passing the fantastic recommendation on to the whole of Monkwood!”

This is a lovely story about kindness and how everything is better when shared with a friend. It is a heart warming story which is beautifully presented with colour illustrations surrounding the text. It is a lovely read and is suitable for everyone, with its funny illustrations, cheeky humour and underlying messages about friendship and life.


Bear has never built a snowman. Neither has rabbit, but he definitely wants to make one that’s better than Bear’s. 

But with an avalanche and a hungry wolf heading his way, Rabbit soon realises that it might be nice to have a friend on his side.

This is a tale of friendship, gravity, and just a little bit of poo!
