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.
A Bag Full Of Pups is story we (my sisters and I) read as children. We still have it on the shelf and my nephew was quite transfixed with it this weekend (apparently all dogs are big doggies). The story is about a man who gives away puppies to various people, some are worker dogs (guide dogs, rat catchers), some are primped and preened (a show dog, a dog who is dressed up) and one is just loved.
My nephew liked seeing all the different dogs, but didn’t seem to be too bothered about what they were doing, although the pictures are interesting enough for an older child to get something out of it too.
