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.
We have been doing a whole lot of work on emotions in toddler room over the last few weeks and reading What Do I Look Like? as part of this (the other book we’ve been reading about emotions is Augustus and His Smile). There’s no real story to the book. It asks what the child will look like when certain things happen. Then you lift the flap and their face is shown. It’s good as a teaching tool because it talks about different emotions, and gets the children to talk about how they might feel in different situations. It also doesn’t actually name the emotions so the kids can talk about how they think the child is feeling from their expression.
The kids enjoy it because they like to lift up the flaps, and because they like to copy the faces.
