Children’s Hour: Caveman Dave

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.

Caveman Dave lives in a cave,
He doesn’t wash and he doesn’t shave,
He’s very smelly, but he’s very brave…

Caveman Dave is a rather odd rather funny little book, all about Caveman Dave, and how very brave he is. The things which show how brave he is are rather amusing, especially with the accompanying pictures.

It has a simple rhyming pattern which is easy for the kids to listen too. They love the pictures too, especially as there are pictures of tigers and dinosaurs! (What more could a two year old want, really?!)

Buy Caveman Dave:

Paperback (£3.79)
