Any parent or teacher who knows the brilliant book Peace at Last by Jill Murphy will feel in sympathy with Daddy Bear as we struggle to find any peace during lockdown. The timeless story of how Daddy Bear goes in search of a quiet place to sleep has been around on bookshelves and in classrooms for forty years now. It’s a brilliant story for using in Early Years to teach the differences between day and night, looking at nocturnal animals, talking about routines and even talking about how worries and fears can keep children awake at night.
I’ve created a 12 page downloadable print at home activity book which is styled like a picture book. I make my activity books with full colour pages – I don’t know about you but I think kids deserve better than the standard photocopiable worksheets that are widely available on download sites. If we want kids to enjoy learning then we should present them with stuff that looks fantastic – the picture book styling though it uses a little more ink is worth it to ensure they love seeing and completing the activity books. By laminating the games and worksheet you can also revisit them time and again.
If you don’t have a copy of Peace at Last you can get one here – we’ve teamed up with Waterstones and if you choose to buy through this link I will receive a small commission which will go towards the cost of creating more
I’m making the Activities Inspired by Peace at Last Activity book FREE to download as an introduction to my books and a way of helping parents and teachers during lockdown – usual price is £3.50.

I have reduced absolutely everything on the site until lockdown is over as a further way of thanking parents and teachers for all they are doing. Please spread the word about the website and resources – come back and add a review if you have time. We are on Facebook and Instagram too.
I only launched right before lockdown and your support is so valued at this tricky time. Don’t forget to have a look our other books in the shop
