Children’s Hour: Five Little Men in a Flying Saucer

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.
Five Little Men in a Flying Saucer  is another book  (like Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush, and I am the Music Man) which is based on a well known song. The book is very popular in pre-school (3-5 year olds), and the kids enjoy reading it to themselves. What I like about this book though is the pictures, they tell a whole story in themselves. As the little men look at the earth they see all the destruction and neglect that it has gone through and don’t want to visit. It has a sort of environmental message that I like, although I’m not really sure how much the kids understand this.
