Can your child draw a picture of their favourite character from the story?

They might like you to help them to write about the characters in the story. Perhaps they could have a go at writing the words themselves. You could write for them or how about making a video of your child writing. Your child could draw a picture of the baby bear, his rocket or what they think the moon would look like.
