All Around Me: A First Book Of Childhood – Shirley Hughes

, , ,

In this classic collection by Kate Greenaway-winning author, Shirley Hughes, Katy and her little brother Olly are having a wonderful time learning about the world around them. From counting in the park with Grandpa, waiting to cross the road with Mum, or even the very noisy sound of Dad vacuuming, there are so many first things to discover on their childhood adventures.

All Around Me is split into five different chapters – Opposites, Counting, Colours, Shapes and Sizes and Sounds. The words are kept to a minimal and describe each item which will help a child that is learning to read. It is also written in a rhyme which makes the words flow and easier to work out.

At the beginning of each chapter, there is a short activity for children to complete. Throughout there are colourful illustrations that have a traditional feel to them. Each item has its own illustration which perfectly captures what is happening.

It is so lovely to see a book featuring siblings that obviously love one another and show them just going through life, from fun times to family times and also bedtime. This is an adorable book that would be perfect for a child just starting to learn to read.
