Children’s Hour: Bruno’s Box


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.

Bruno’s Box is one of the books that the kids brought in on World Book Day. It was (at least in my opinion) the best of the selection, and the kids seemed to enjoy it too.

Bruno’s Box is (believe it or not) all about Bruno’s box, and why it’s brilliant. We see the different things that Bruno does with his box, things such as turning it into a rocket or a pirate ship, or even a dinosaur! The kids love to talk about what Bruno’s box has become, and we can try and think of other things that Bruno’s box could become.

Unfortunately the last couple of pages were missing 😦 but at least we could talk about what might have happened.

Buy it:

Paperback (£5.99)

Board Book (£3.99)
