Yr1 Ds has been struggling a bit with the comprehension of words, turns of phrase etc in some books such as paddington bear. The school have suggested we bring in reading books from home so Ds chose mr GUm from the bookshop today. Would this be acceptable to the school or would it be frowned upon?

Oh, and Paddington is really difficult because it's old fashioned, and has a a very wide vocabulary. Great for reading aloud though.

Also agree that Paddington is best when he's a bit older. We listen to Stephen Fry reading Paddington in the car and the DC love it.
