Children’s Hour: Lullabyhullaballoo

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.

Lullabyhullaballoo is one of the favourite books in pre-school at the moment, and I must say I like it too. It’s all about a little princess who can’t sleep, everyone is just making too much noise! What shall we do?

“We’ll tell them to shhhh…


The kids like all the characters, and like telling them to shhh, plus they find it funny when the princess finally gets to sleep and starts to snore. I’ve read it to the toddlers too. They find it a little too long, although when encouraged they will join in with the shhh-ing, and like to open the flaps to see the character’s reactions.

Mick Inkpen is probably better known as the writer and illustrator of the Kipper books, but actually I think this one is better.
