LoveReading4Kids Says

This is the second collaboration between Rosen and Starling, following the brilliant I Am Angry. Both take a poem from the award winning A Great Big Cuddle to give it new life as a picturebook and each poem really lends itself to a longer format with more opportunity for an illustrator to tell the story behind the poem and breathe life into the narrator. The bold colours and hugely expressive characters really grab the young reader’s attention, and the words are, of course, a joy to read-aloud. In an introduction the author tells us that when he is hungry, he likes to imagine all the things he might want to eat, and that often quite strange things pop into his mind and suggests this as an imaginative game to try at home.

Certainly, this is what our very, very, hungry Squirrel does as his suggestions of what he could eat get increasingly bizarre. Young children delight in the absurd and have no fear of non-conformity and they also will recognise the feeling of being hungry being the most important thing in the world at that moment.

A lovely book to inspire imaginative discussions in Reception and reflection upon their own younger selves!
