Children’s Hour is the weekly feature where I look at picture books I have encountered during my work at nursery. My reviews contain children’s opinions which are usually from the children in toddler room (so they are all 2). Sometimes I also have books which my niece and nephew are enjoying too.
You can find links to past Children’s Hour posts here.
The image (if you were wondering) is taken from Shirley’s Hughes’ Alfie and Annie-Rose books which I loved as a child.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar is very popular book, so you can forgive me for presuming that the toddlers would like it. I wouldn’t go as far as to say they disliked it, just that they didn’t have any particularly strong feelings about it. They like it more as it becomes predictable, and now they know what the slightly unusual foods are. They still wouldn’t pick it though, and they find it hard to concentrate for the whole thing
