Keith the koala was so excited to start school; he had been looking forward to his first day for so long. All he wanted was to have lots of friends, as he only had one friend and that was Ned the newt, his favourite toy, who went everywhere with Keith.

He could not wait to see what his school experience would be like and had been imagining how fantastic school would be, but things don’t always go to plan.

Follow Keith the koala on his school adventure, meet his teacher Miss Carol the crocodile and his classmates: Burt the bear, Harry the hyena, Ronnie the rhino, Patty the possum and Zoe the zebra and share his experiences.

See how Keith the koala deals with situations that he feels are his causing and see how his classmates approach the circumstances.

This is an anti-bullying book to show children that it is not okay to make others feel sad at school and for those children who are unhappy to talk to an adult to resolve the issues, as nobody should feel that they don
t want to go to school because of bullying.

“We are all different, that’s what makes this world interesting.”

Francesca Liversidge was brought up in a family of six in Yorkshire, where reading was always a fond pastime for her and her siblings.

Francesca is an animal lover and decided to combine her love of fluffy creatures with her passion of storytelling to create Keith the Koala Goes to School and many more. Through her loveable characters, Francesca is able to discuss sensitive topics such as bullying in her books to encourage children to be open about their feelings.

    Keith the Koala is a very easy read, great for children and a very interesting insight into anti bullying for children to learn.

    Reviewed by my 10-year-old granddaughter who read it to her 3-year-old sister who has just started nursery.
    Keith the Koala goes to school in an amazing book against bullying.
    We loved it because it hits the point of being kind and learning to control your feelings and understand bullying as well. It is a book I would recommend to anyone especially the newer generation of schoolchildren.
    We love it!

    I, fortunately, came across this book and my daughter (6year old) absolutely loved it. Touched on some very important subjects that children need to have an understanding of. Would highly recommend it.
