How To Be More Paddington: A Book Of Kindness by Michael Bond is a perfect book for anyone of any age who loves Paddington – and who can resist that little face? Many generations have grown up with this bear.
The book is beautifully illustrated by Peggy Fortnum to accompany the words of the author. Both pictures and words could be used as starting points for chatting with young children about the importance of being kind, just like Paddington.
The essence of Paddington has been beautifully captured within this book. It is a pure delight and a welcome addition to any bookshelf.
I loved Paddington as a child. I love Paddington as an adult. I would certainly answer the call to ‘please look after this bear.’
