Synopsis

Storytime: be Careful, Barney by Lucy Barnard

Barney is a very adventurous little fox club. His mummy always says 'Be Careful, Barney!', but he just won't listen. Barney thinks being daring is great fun; instead of riding his bike like his friends, he performs tricks. He loves to dress as a superhero and pretends to fly by leaping from a great height. Barney's mummy always dreads going to the park because Barney hangs upside down from the climbing frame by his tail and yells 'Faster' on the roundabout even when his friends want to stop. But when Barney's class go on a school trip, the little fox discovers just how dangerous his behaviour is. Despite being told not to go near the river, Barney tries to cross it, falls in and is carried away! Barney's friend Trevor finds a branch and manages to save a very scared Barney . The next day, while at the park, Barney is tempted to hang upside down as usual, but then he remembers how scared he felt when he fell in the river and how worried his mummy had been. He runs to find his friends and soon discovers that he can have just as much fun without taking so many risks. Part of the QED Storytime series, this beautifully illustrated book introduces young children to the pleasures of reading and sharing stories, and includes supporting notes for parents and teachers. Storytime has recently featured on Cbeebies Bedtime Stories.
