    The story centres around a teddy bear he has one eye that is a button meaning he see s everything in fours rather than singles, and so much stuffing within him that is arms and chest is solid and he has never been able to get his deeply buried squeaker to work Different people that have tried to get Threadbears squeaker to work, and all failing miserably This of course makes Threadbear really sad that he can t squeak and do as he should for his owner and friend Ben After taking advice from th The story centres around a teddy bear he has one eye that is a button meaning he see s everything in fours rather than singles, and so much stuffing within him that is arms and chest is solid and he has never been able to get his deeply buried squeaker to work Different people that have tried to get Threadbears squeaker to work, and all failing miserably This of course makes Threadbear really sad that he can t squeak and do as he should for his owner and friend Ben After taking advice from the other toys, he decides to sit on the roof and wait for Santa to come, as he is after all the specialist knowledge in toys After waiting and finally being picked up by Santa, he is taken to a special land that, after eating the sweet and delicious squeaker fruit, should rectify his problem After eating the fruit however, Threadbear becomes very tired and begins to fall from the tree, when he awakens he is sitting on the floor after falling from the roof of his house Did he dream the entire scenario, and what will finally help him squeak again. This is a lovely story that neither confirms nor denies the intervention of Santa.The illustration is really nice and simple Children would be able to understand the story through the pictures The text is reasonably simple to read, I would recommend yr 2 upwards to read by them self This is a good bedtime book

    Every child has a Threadbear Even if it s not specifically a bear, most children have something that they treasure, a leaf maybe So it really tugs on the heart strings to think of your bear as being alive and feeling sad.Ben had a bear called Threadbear, and Threadbear was sad because he had a squeaker that had never squeaked Not even once Everybody tried to get his squeaker to work but everybody failed, even the Doctor So Threadbear set out to find Father Christmas to ask him for a squeake Every child has a Threadbear Even if it s not specifically a bear, most children have something that they treasure, a leaf maybe So it really tugs on the heart strings to think of your bear as being alive and feeling sad.Ben had a bear called Threadbear, and Threadbear was sad because he had a squeaker that had never squeaked Not even once Everybody tried to get his squeaker to work but everybody failed, even the Doctor So Threadbear set out to find Father Christmas to ask him for a squeaker that squeaked In his adventures he got very dirty, so Ben s mum had to put him in the washing machine and hang him on the line I won t ruin the end of the story, but the last word is SQUEAK The book is not very long and is supported greatly by illustrations like Mick Inkpen s other books ie Kipper I would suggest this book to 3 10 year old children, or anybody who likes a good kids story Regarding the curriculum it can link to Science materials and their properties , DT, PSHE, English make up someadventures for Threadbear to have and Art get the children to bring in their Threadbear and draw paint it
