Children’s Hour: Panda Big and Panda Small

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.

Panda Big and Panda Small are very different, but they love each other very much. This book (which is one we got on our visit to the library) talks about all the things which each of the pandas like to do. It talks a lot about concepts like size and distance, and talks about opposites so it’s good for developing language. Plus the kids love telling you which things they like to do (which is pretty much all the things). It’s simple language, but with good reading it can still be exciting.

The pictures are my personal favourite part. Beautiful, bold, bright.
