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.
Here We Go the Mulberry Bush is a variation on the traditional song. It starts off with the traditional song then carries on by following a child’s day. The changes are simple e.g. This is the way we brush our teeth/go to school/eat our lunch on a cold and frosty morning/afternoon/evening, which makes it easier for the children to follow, and easy for them to learn so they can ‘read’ it to themselves. The accompanying pictures show each part of the day. They are beautiful and bright to really capture the children’s interest, and the older kids love spotting all the different things that the children in the pictures are doing. See if you’re kids can spot the similarities in the pictures shown by the holes too!
