Nursery Review: Hungry Bunny by Claudia Rueda

Hungry Bunny.jpgWhen I read about this book in Chronicle Book’s newsletter I couldn’t resist requesting a copy – I’d never read an interactive story before so I was excited to see what was involved.

I was sent this book by Chronicle Books in return for an honest review.

Nursery Review: Always There Bear by Trudi Granger (Illustrated by Gareth Llewhellin)

always-there-bear.jpgI found this book in a shop for £1 so I absolutely had to buy it for the children I work with – I loved the cute illustrations & it was short & sweet enough to be read to them before lunch or tea time.

I decided to take it into work to read to the 2 & 3 year olds I work with… although the book was a bit long for them, the older children seemed to be really engaged in the story – with one boy telling his mum that he couldn’t go home yet because the story wasn’t finished. Plus, the next day I had a conversation that went a little like this:
