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’re Going on a Bear Hunt has been around the nursery since before I started there. However we only recently actually got a hold of the book. This means that our kids know it like they know songs. They can pretty much read it to themselves- along with actions. The pictures are beautiful, and they help prompt the kids memories, but for us the book isn’t essential. Having said that it is a book which the children really enjoy, and if you don’t know it off-by-heart yourself then it’s pretty much an essential.
