Children’s Hour: Tickle One Baby

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.

Tickle One Baby is a baby book really. It’s very simple, and doesn’t have much in terms of a plot. It basically follows a baby’s afternoon, she gets tickled, she plays with toys, she has a sleep. Even though it is such a simple book one child who is in toddlers really likes it. I don’t think that has much to do with the story so much as the telling (if I do say so myself!). I follow what happens to baby, tickling when baby is tickled, getting the kids to search for certain toys, and ‘sleeping’ when the baby sleeps.

It’s a nice book, as a baby book, but I wouldn’t really recommend it for toddlers.

Buy it:

Hardback (£3.19)
