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 kids enjoyed the loud “HONK! HONK!”‘s, but weren’t actually that interested in the story itself, and quickly lost attention. Having said that they were in a particularly wild mood today- so that could account for it.
I think they would have liked it if they were in a different frame of mind. It has a bit of a dramatic tone, and rhymes- both things which tends to be popular, and it has (a couple) of flaps to open. There was actually a book we used to have which was called The Skydiver (but I can’t find anywhere), which had three stories in it including a very similar one which the kids loved, so I can see that they would like Goose on the Loose
