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.
The Red Fire Engine has been so popular recently that we had to remove it from the book box as it was causing so many arguments! To be honest it’s the sound button that the kids enjoy more than the actual story. There’s no problem with the story though. It’s very simple. the red fire engine races through the streets to reach a barn which is on fire, and saves all the animals, of course with the chance topress the button on every page (nee naw, nee naw!)
The Red Fire Engine doesn’t seem to be sold by amazon (directly) but I know that Igloo books are stocked in Aldi, or you can buy new or used from amazon:
Paperback- new (from £5.23)
Paperback- used (from £0.01)
