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.
Me is a delightful little book which has in the past been a part of the Bookstart pack. It’s more of one for parents to read really I think, and maybe in a way more designed for parents but it is beautiful, and the kids enjoy the penguins. The book follows a young penguin looking at the world and seeing just how big it is, and maybe just a little bit scary.
“The world is big…and I am small”
Then penguin looks at Mummy/Daddy and knows that everything is safe.
“But you are big, and you are strong…”
