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.
What is a Crocodile’s Favourite Thing? Is a funny, silly book. All the animals are wondering what a crocodile’s favourite thing might be, with increasingly strange, and obviously wrong answers
“Is it doing ballet, while dressed as a princess?
Is it wearing pyjamas made from bananas?
NO! I don’t think that is his favourite thing”
The kids love the funny pictures of the crocodile, and getting to shout NO! throughout, but a lot of the toddlers didn’t seem to grasp that a crocodile wouldn’t do some of these things. Or maybe they just thought he would like it is he could do it! They also liked getting to say “ewww” at things like”eating a dirty pants sandwich”!
They loved the twist at the end of the tale as well, and I rather enjoyed that part too.
