WHAT THE PARENT THOUGHT
The impending arrival of the Royal Baby is something that most children will be aware of, and perhaps excited for. And if they aren't aware of it now, they almost certainly will be once the baby has actually arrived.
This book is a lovely way to harness that excitement, and transfer it in to a book and story that children will want to read and be read to.
With the content being 'nappies' whilst perhaps the book isn't aimed at young boys, its humour certainly will, as it will to lots of other groups of children that find toilet humour hilarious.
The author has wonderful form for that. We hadn't realised but he's also behind one of our other favourite children's books, Father Christmas Needs a Wee! We return to that one every festive period, and laugh more each time we read it.
I like how The Royal Nappy is much more than just about poo jokes though. There's something in it for all ages to smile about, even subtle story lines in their for us adult readers.
It's going to be a very topical book, and it's full of history without being at all boring.
WHAT THE TEACHER THOUGHT
Helen is an early years foundation stage leader. She’s responsible for the education of over 150 three to six-year-olds. Helen has over a decade’s experience in early years learning, and this is what she thinks of The Royal Nappy by Nicholas Allan.
“This book has a lot in it. There's something for all age ranges. Some of it is very suitable for early years, whereas other parts will be better for a more grown up child”
“Its illustrations are fun, full of humour, especially for the younger child. My favourite one is of the Royal Baby visiting Great-grandma's house!”
“The use of relating nappies to nations flags for the baby's travel and international visitors is great. An easy way to introduce children to the concept of national flags and tool for remembering them.”
“It's bang up to date, but also covers a little history, back to Henry The VIII and other significant people and events in the life of the Royal Nanny.”
“I may chose to read it differently depending on my audience, or a child's age. There's nothing at all age inappropriate about the book, but some parts will just work better for a younger, or older, child.”
So that's what we made of The Royal Nappy and we have four copies of it to giveaway.
