“Yellowbelly and Plum Go to School” is a fun story about Yellowbelly and his best friend, a stuffed bear named Plum.  Yellowbelly and Plum are inseparable and play all kinds of creative games such as “meteor shower” and “orthodontist.”  It was only natural on Yellowbelly’s first day of school that Plum joins him.  Everything was going great until Plum got lost!

Cayden:  “He likes his bear a lot!”

Max:  “Me like my bunny!”

Cayden:  “Yellowbelly likes his bear like you like your bunny.”

Cayden:  “They sure play some funny things!  They are in the mailbox pretending to be envelopes!”

Max:  “We go in mailbox?”

Cayden:  “I don’t think we would fit!  We are too big!  I don’t know how they got in there!”

Cayden:  “They are going to school like I go to school.”

Max:  “Plum lost!!”

Cayden:  “I hope he finds him!  Look at all of those people.  I think it is going to be really hard!”

Max:  “There he is!!”

Cayden:  “You found him Max!  Good job!”

Cayden:  “I liked the pictures in this book.  There were lots of funny-looking monsters at that school and some kids too!  I liked the fun games they played.  They did some funny things!   I liked when Yellowbelly pretended to be a basketball and went through the hoop.”

Parent’s comments:
“Yellowbelly and Plum Go to School” by Nathan Hale was a very unique, creative book.  The games that they played were original and humorous and had my children laughing out loud.  The illustrations were colorful and extremely engaging and eye-catching.  My boys really enjoyed this entertaining story and it will be one that we read again and again!
