Children’s Hour: Superworm

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.

This week I read my Children’s Hour choice, Superworm, to the pre-schoolers. Superworm is a hero who loves helping the other insects

“Superworm is super long

Superworm is super strong

See him wiggle

Watch him squirm

Hip-hip-horray for SUPERWORM”

but one day Superworm gets into trouble, and it’s time for the other insects to be the heroes.

The kids obviously love this book. They pretty much know it off by heart, to the point where they could tell me what was on the next page before I’d read it.

It’s quite good to read as an adult too, has a fairly interesting plot where picture books are concerned.

And the usual Julia Donaldson rhythm and rhyme is always popular!

Hardback (£5.00)

Paperback (£6.04)
