Shirley Hughes - Best Children's Writer
on 17 February 2009
My son like I am are really looked forward to the next installment in the life and antics of Alfie as he starts to grow up.
True to form it's another 5 star classic from Shirley Hughes, beautifully written and illustrated. All that my son and I can hope is that she has enough time to write a few more in the series.
I also highly recommend Shirley Hughes's Nursery collection which is excellent for the under 3 age group. They are written in rhyme which is very important as it helps to hold the interest for the youngest age group.
We have all the Alfie, Annie Rose my Little Sister and Olly & Me books and can't recommend them highly enough. The whole family especially enjoys Dogger.
I would also like to recommend the Katie books (Sunflowers, Mona Lisa & the Impressionists) by James Mayhew. Because of these books my 3 year old son loves going to art galleries to see the actual pictures.
