Children’s Hour: Don’t Wake The Bear, Hare!

Children’s Hour is a feature posted every Thursday here at Lucybird’s Book Blog. Children’s Hour is my time for reviewing children’s picture books. In my job in a nursery I encounter lots of children’s books, and these are the books I use for Children’s Hour.

You can find links to past Children’s Hour posts here.

I’d love to hear everybody’s experiences of the books I review too, and feel free to post me a link to your own reviews, I’d love to make this a bit interactive.

The image (if you were wondering) is taken from Shirley’s Hughes’ Alfie and Annie-Rose books which I loved as a child.

I was going to do a whole World Book Day post today. We asked the kids (well their parents really) to bring in books. Only two did, and one was one I’ve already featured on Children’s Hour, so that plan didn’t really work out. (The books were We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and Mother’s Day For Kanga by the way).

So instead one of our new books; Don’t Wake The Bear, Hare! In Don’t Wake the Bear, Hare! all the animals in the forest are getting ready for a party when they find that there is a bear sleeping. Now bears are pretty scary so the animals don’t want to wake him.

All the panic is quite funny, with the repeated “Don’t wake the bear!”. The kids find it pretty funny, and I do too. The pictures meet with the whole busy atmosphere too. And there’s a rhyme, which is always good in kid’s books. The kids in pre-school seem to like it too.

Paperback (£4.49)
