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.
Daisy is a cute little duck with her own series of picture books. In Come on, Daisy! Daisy is so eager to explore the pond that she forgets to keep an eye on Mummy, and things start to turn scary. The children rather enjoyed this book, especially when Daisy met a frog, and they were both making lots of noises, and when they were trying to see what was scaring Daisy. It’s also gives a good way to talk to the kids about the importance of sticking with your parents when you are out and about. I hadn’t realised at the time but it actually fit well with a problem a parent had had earlier when his child wanted to run off in the car park.
Come On, Daisy! was also a previous silver award winner for the Smarties Prize.
