It’s A Family Thing: The Christmas Rehearsal by Sue Wickstead {Review}

Alexis and I have had the pleasure of reading all of Sue’s books until now. I was hoping to have this review out to you sooner but due to moving and then Christmas I simply didn’t get the time.

The Christmas Play Rehearsal

It is Christmas time, and the school has been getting ready to perform their Nativity play.

With lines learnt and songs to be sung, it is time for the dress rehearsal. The teacher knows there might be a few problems to sort out, but at least they will know what to improve on or change along the way.

Review

What a delightful little book this was. Different to the Jay-Jay bus books we have read previously, this book was full of festive cheer. Alexis loved reading this and looking at the pictures. Sue as usual did not disappoint in writing a book and creating a little world that my 4yr old loves to learn about.

 


Author Bio

I am a teacher and an author and have currently written six children’s picture books with a bus theme.

For over 20 years, alongside my teaching career, I worked with a Children’s Charity, The Bewbush Playbus Association, which led me to write a photographic history book about it.

I soon found that many children had never been on a bus before, let alone a ‘Playbus’ and they wanted to know more. I decided to write a fictional tale about the bus, his number plate JJK261 gave him his name.

‘Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus,’ came out in print in 2014. It is the story behind the original bus and is his journey from a scrap-yard to being changed into a playbus for children to play in. From Fact to fiction the bus journey continued.

This story has now been followed by five more picture books.

I also undertake events and author bookings and love to share the story. There are also a few more stories in the writing process, with links to real events and buses.

The story has been read in many schools in the south-East of England, where I teach as a cover teacher, it is always well received and certainly different.
