Howard is looking for a friend but none of his potential new companions is quite right.

Curriculum link to Living things and their habitats – distinguishing between living and non-living, and understanding how different habitats provide for the basic needs of different kinds of animals.

A Friend for Howard is the fifth of six titles in the Stories for Science series from Millgate Publishing, A Friend for Howard is an endearing and beautifully illustrated story for children aged 5-7 which sets the scene for science investigations about living things and their habitats.

The stories do not have satisfactory endings and the characters are left with a problem to solve. After doing some appropriate investigations in science lessons, children will be able to use their knowledge to write a happy ending to the story.

The book comes with an extensive downloadable resource pack of teacher notes and lesson plans.

Why not take a look at the next book in the series It MIght Come in Useful: Bear saves everything because he knows it will all come in useful at some point. His collection grows so big that he has trouble finding what he needs. Is there a way he could organise things better?
