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.
The That’s Not My… series are pretty good when it comes to baby books. No real plot or excitement but simple enough for babies and good for exploring textures. Each book is basically the same. They follow an object trying to find the right one, e.g. ‘That’s not my fairy her wand is too squashy’, with textures which match the words. The pictures are simple and bright too which makes them attractive to babies. There’s a whole series of books, from fairies, to monkeys, to tractors, and there are even Christmas and Easter specials, and colouring book versions.
