David's Bathtime Adventure by Sue Wickstead #Review #Giveaway


It's time for David's Bathtime Adventure!  Here we have a delightful picture book for ages 4-8, written by Sue Wickstead. There is also a chance to win a Double-Decker Playbus colouring book with a 3D model for Daisy Daydream Bus (Open to UK Only).   Details on how to enter are at the foot of this post.

David loves his bath time!

As Mum fills the bath with water, David get himself ready for a swimming adventure.

With toys and his fishing gear, he certainly enjoys splashing around in the water.

(And making a mess!)

Where will his imagination take him?

 This picture book will appeal to young readers, aged 4-8, who will absolutely recognise the bathtime scene. It will lend itself to sharing and discussion. The illustrations are bright and colourful and contain such a lot of details which the young reader will recognise. The test is clear and well set out, with sentences spaced out and clearly positioned. There is alo dialogue with the use of speech marks. This is a fun addition to Sue Wickstead's stories which are all so relatable for young children.There are also some varied ideas at the end of the book for opportunities to enable children to learn through water play.

Cat and Mouse say: water, water everywhere!

About the Author

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 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.

The story has led to other children’s stories.

‘David’s Bathtime Adventure’, as well as my last book ‘David’s bin Day’, is a story about my comical little brother growing up and the games he liked to play.

There are more stories written and on their way. (All of my stories do have a bus in them somewhere.)

In my role as visiting Supply Teacher, I am able to share my stories.

I have also undertaken author visits both in schools as well as online, visited libraries for story time and events on request.

I have also used many of my books as a starting point for online learning with EYFSHome – providing ideas to support the books. (Both of the David stories were told as part of this which led to the writing of the books.)
