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.
Well Done, Little Bear is one in the Big Bear, Little Bear series by Martin Waddell (who also wrote Owl Babies). In Well Done, Little Bear Little Bear wants to go exploring and does lots of exciting thing, with Big Bear always there to help him. Little Bear’s adventures get more and more risky until he slips into the river, but Big Bear soon saves him and they get across the river together. This is a lovely book to talk about people who look after us. One boy in particular really loves Little Bear and Big Bear, although he’s rather confused as to where Little Bear’s Daddy is. It’s not one we read often because it’s a bit long for the younger toddlers, but it’s getting requested a lot by this particular child, and the other older children enjoy it too.
