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.
Fred and Ted’s Treasure Hunt is another story we’ve had for quite a while but which has only recently become popular. In fact one of the children seemed to be following me around with it all day the other day. It is (believe it or not) a book about a treasure hunt.
Fred and Ted follow the directions on the map, and the kids can too. With counting and actions it’s a great book to join in with, although it doesn’t really have that much of a plot as such. You can make it exciting though, with careful reading. The kids enjoy being able to join in with the directions and the counting, but some bits are a bit difficult for two year olds to count, especially when you have to count different things on the same page.
