Children’s Hour: There’s An Ouch In My Pouch!

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.

There’s An Ouch In My Pouch! is one of our new books, but it hasn’t gone down too well. It’s about a young Wallaby who finds that his mother’s pouch has become uncomfortable so goes to find  a new pouch. The kids find it a bit long to follow, and I think there being so many animals they aren’t familiar with doesn’t help either (and add that they are still obsessed with Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? So nothing else is good enough). They do like the repeated complaining of there being an ouch in the pouch however.

To read it’s really annoying. Full of tongue twisters and lots of Ws and Rs.

Buy There’s An Ouch in My Pouch!:
