Children’s Hour: You Choose

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.

You Choose is not so much a story book as a picture book. The basic idea is that there are pages full of lovely little pictures and the child chooses which they would want when they are grown up (there are things like what house you will live in, what your job will be, who your friends will be.). The pictures are classic Nick Sharratt style, simple, bright and inviting. It’s a particularly big hit in pre-school, and they like to read it to themselves, which is a relief as it’s the most boring book to read to someone.


Buy You Choose:

Paperback (£3.89)

  1. My favourite children’s book at the moment is ‘The Incredible Book Eating Boy’ by Oliver Jeffers.


  2. What a cute idea for a picture book! This sounds great; thanks for sharing!


  3. It is good for sharing, just a little boring to read again, and again, and again…


  4. I haven’t heard of that one. What’s it about?
