Children’s Hour: All Join In

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.

All Join In was the first Quentin Blake book I introduced to the kids (it was the only one we had in the nursery). All Join In is a collection of poems, which I really enjoyed as a child. It made me a bit sad that the toddlers didn’t really take to it, however. I think maybe the poem format was a it harder for them to engage with than a story as there wasn’t a plot as such. Possibly they would have liked just one poem at a time, or might have been interested on more of a one-on-one basis than as a group.
