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.
Let’s Go To Nursery is what you would expect it to be. A story about going to nursery. It has all the stereotypical things, like eating snack, painting, the sand box. The kids don’t pick it up frequently, but more frequently than a lot of books. They don’t really have that much of a response to it either, but I think they like seeing things they recognise in it.
As a story for those starting nursery I don’t really rate it. It doesn’t have any of the things in it which are scary about starting nursery, or not nice about nursery. No Mums leaving, not arguments, no new people. It shows a good, positive nursery attitude but I’m not sure it would be much of a comfort or good preparation
