Children’s Hour: My Best Friends


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.

My Best Friends is (believe it or not) about friends. All the things friends do, all the ups and downs. It’s a sweet book, but doesn’t really have much substance. The kids find it fairly interesting to look at the pictures and talk about the things they have done however. And the pictures remind me a little of Nick Sharret, so they are nice and colourful and cheerful.

Me is a delightful little book which has in the past been a part of the Bookstart pack. It’s more of one for parents to read really I think, and maybe in a way more designed for parents but it is beautiful, and the kids enjoy the penguins. The book follows a young penguin looking at the world and seeing just how big it is, and maybe just a little bit scary.

“The world is big…and I am small”

Then penguin looks at Mummy/Daddy and knows that everything is safe.

“But you are big, and you are strong…”
