Paddington Goes to Hospital Band 15/Emerald Synopsis

We should never have given Paddington a boomerang for his birthday, said Mrs Brown as she gazed down at the figure lying on the lawn. I knew no good would come of it. Paddington has got himself into trouble again, and this time he finds himself being whisked off to hospital in an ambulance. Full of the humorous misunderstandings and adventures that this lovable bear is famous for, this is a great story for the young Paddington fan who is apprehensive, or merely curious, about what goes on inside a hospital. Children can recap Paddington's experience in hospital through his letter to Aunt Lucy on pages 30-31, providing lots of speaking and listening opportunities. Emerald/Band 15 books provide a widening range of genres including science fiction and biography, prompting more ways to respond to texts. Ideas for Reading provide practical support and stimulating activities.
