The author of Dogger and Alfie, Shirley Hughes is one of the world's favourite children's authors and her traditional style of artwork has become iconic.
This collection, presented in a beautiful cloth bag, will introduce nursery-aged children to a number of first concepts and experiences, including the alphabet, numbers and colours.
The set also contains a book covering every season of the year. With their gentle text and beautiful artwork, these are books that will be returned to time and time again as children grow up and learn with them.
These books are so lovely. My granddaughter (3 in June), has enjoyed them since she was a baby, and still loves them. I'm sure they've helped both her speech and comprehension. Just bought two more sets as presents. Can't recommended Shirley Hughes highly enough for both her wonderful and sensitive illustrations, and accessible rhymes and text.
The Shirley Hughes Nursery Collection -
Very pleased with this collection of books. They look good and are presented in a sweet cloth bag with picture on the front.
I wasn't expecting this much from these books, I thought they would be useful and nice as the price was so good I bought one set for my setting (I'm a childminder and mum) and one for a nursery I know.
The books are so descriptive, so great to build vocabulary through lovely poems and also for the child's imagination they transport the child to 'summer' they also teach the child the books subject whilst holding concentration and the illustrations are gorgeous. Well worth the money.
Well. first, the service was excellent. The package arrived in 24 hours! Offer is spectacular for what you receive and Shirley Hughes is amazzzzzing. Such beautiful illustrations. Yes, the stories can be old-fashioned but that is totally part of their charm. Beautiful books that my daughter can learn from and again this offer is amazing - it's a must for Shirley Hughes fans.
I am reading my daughter these books that I read my eldest, now adult, daughter (20months/21 years) that I was also read. Love it! And the bag... lovely wee keepsake. Amazing value, amazing price.
I'm from the older generation but work with preschool children. Many popular titles have been newly illustrated but I would weep if Shirley Hughes' fabulously textural hand drawings were lost to new readers. With ABC's, seasons and more in this collection, these books will please all preschoolers.
