Sue Wickstead – David’s Bin Day @rararesources @JayJayBus #DavidsBinDay #children’s books #illustrated #picture books #bookblogger #bookreview

I’m so happy to be hosting a stop today for David’s Bin Day by Sue Wickstead on behalf of Rachel’s Random Resources. Thanks to both Rachel and Sur for the beautiful book to take part today.

What happens on a Wednesday morning?
As the bin lorry clatters down the street a little boy is watching with interest.
Just like them David is wearing his brightly coloured bobble hat.
He is ready to play.
But where does everything disappear to?
And what happened to Daddy’s important letter?

“David’s playtime adventure stirs up a bit of trouble
in this sweet book about playing pretend.”
Sarah Flores, Write Down the Line.

David’s Bin Day is an inspiring, cute and charming picture book that’s aimed at 3 to 8 year old children. My toddler granddaughter is 3 in August and I read this to her more than once. She loved the illustrations and was so interested in David’s love of the Bin men on Bin Day.

David loves bin day. He watches the bin men every week and even has his own bobble hat like they have. He takes it upon himself to begin his own tidy up campaign. Things start to disappear around the house…including a rather important letter to daddy and we join the search to find it.

A cute story that majority of children can relate too, it engaged my granddaughter anyway. We talked about the story and she loved looking at the pictures as I read to her.

A delightful story that is as good for younger childrens as it is for the older more confident readers. It has pride of place on the bookshelves in our house for everytime she visits she insists on the book coming out. I think this is a great addition to her library and I appreciate having the chance to review and read it. I will be looking into for more of Sue Wickstead’s children’s books that’s for sure.

Author Bio

A work of the heart.
I am a Supply teacher working across Sussex and Surrey.
For over 20 years, alongside my teaching career, I worked with a Children’s Charity, a Playbus, which led me to write a photographic history book about it. (Bewbush Playbus.)
I soon found that many children had never been on a bus let alone a ‘Playbus’ and they wanted to know more.
I have been telling stories about the bus which led me to writing the fictional tale.
‘Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus’, came out in print in 2014. From Fact to fiction the bus journey continues.
The story has led to 11 other children’s stories to date; some are from my teaching and play-work experiences as well as my bus adventures. There are more stories written and on their way.
In my role as visiting Supply Teacher, I am able to share the story as well as to leave a copy of the book in each school as I go.
I undertake author visits in schools, libraries and events on request.
