[6] [7] Biography [ edit ]

This book would be suitable for Early Years as it has rhythmical text and features a game that will be recognised by young children. Janet Hall was born 21 October 1944 in Yorkshire [10] and brought up in Leicester. [9] The Ahlbergs both trained as teachers at Sunderland Technical College, where they met during the 1960s and married in 1969. [9]Age 0-5 ‘Each Peach Pear Plum, I spy Tom Thumb. Tom Thumb in the cupboard, I spy Mother Hubbard.’ This classic picturebook is a memorable rhyme which links together traditional English nursery rhymes. The beautifully detailed illustrations provide a wonderful visual I Spy game of spot-the-character, too. If your children have grown out of the board book stage, though, books by Yasmeen Ismail like Would You Like a Banana?or Two Canby Smriti Prasadam-Halls are good for toddlers with plenty of fun and repetition.

Now that's the sign of a special book! Working together, the Ahlbergs produced many popular books for a range of ages. Some, such as Peepo! and The Baby's Catalogue are aimed at babies and toddlers. For older children, they wrote books such as Burglar Bill, Cops and Robbers, Funnybones and the Happy Families series. Allan also wrote two books of verses, Heard it in the Playground and Please, Mrs Butler, which Janet illustrated, and more text-heavy books such as Woof!. [1] [9]Another daisy chain: it’s a book I’ve given to many friends. They usually say how much they and their child enjoy it. I hope that one day, they and their children will pass it on. It is a great book which young learners can become involved in. It can be read to the whole class and followed by setting smaller group tasks and/or individual activities, using words, text and recognisable characters that feature in the book.
