Laura's Star and the New Teacher
by Klaus Baumgart
Age Range: 6-8
It is the beginning of the new school year and Laura is very excited. While out shopping with her dad for a new school bag she meets Joe West one of her classmates, who says that her new teacher, Mrs Williamson is really strict, gives out lots of homework and is the worst teacher in the whole school. Suddenly Laura is not so keen to go back to school after all. In fact, she is dreading it. But maybe her special friend, the star, can help her out once again?
The sparkly star is always there to guide Laura and light up the watercolour illustrations. This First Reader series does not have as much artwork as the picture books in the ‘Laura’ series – only six full-page illustrations, but it does have many vignettes which are still just as attractive.
Others titles in the series are: Picture Books – Laura’s Star, Laura’s Christmas Star and Laura’s Secret. First Reader series – Laura’s Star and the Search for Santa and Laura’s Star and the Sleepover. There is also a Laura’s Star Sticker Activity Book.
