Children’s Hour: World Book Day

Children’s Hour is a feature here at Lucybird’s Book Blog every Thursday, where I’m looking at children’s picture books. As I work in a nursery I get plenty of opportunities to look at picture books, and to see what the kids think of them so it really makes sense to use those experiences.

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.

Happy World Book Day book fans! To celebrate the toddlers brought in some of their favourite books to share with their friends. Over the next few weeks we are going to look at some of them in more detail, but for today I wanted to share what they decided to bring in. Where available links lead to amazon.

Something Beginning with Blue

We’ve looked at this book before on Children’s Hour, although our copy has become ‘over-loved’ it was nice to read it in its entirety again. A book around colours.



We didn’t read this one, it seemed a bit long for the toddlers. It’s a basic version of the Disney Dumbo story

Bruno’s Box

A story about Bruno and his box, and why his box is so fantastic

Mr Nosey and the Big Surprise

Mr Nosey finds a door so, being Mr Nosey, he had to see what is behind it

Incy Wincy Spider

Two kids brought in Incy Wincy Spider books. One a puppet book, and the other a sound book. Exactly the sort of thing you would expect.

Fireman Sam Ready For Action

Simple Fireman Sam sound book.



Monster’s University Magnetic Drawing Book

We didn’t read this because it’s more of an activity book really. With the idea being that you do the activity on the board.
