Nana's knickers - Children's book review

It's time for bed and time for the bedtime story, we find it very difficult to find a story that appeals to both of our youngest girls who are 5 and 8 years old. The 8yr old will often complain that the book her sister has chosen is too childish while the 5yr old gets bored without pictures to look at.
This amusing story is all about Nana and her family trying to find her missing knickers!


When the new book Nana's knickers arrived both girls were keen to listen and were giggling as I read the title. I think most children find words considered 'naughty' amusing, and the title engaged them instantly.
The book is a good size and large enough for several children to look at together and the pictures are large and colourful. The children enjoyed having just a small amount of text on each page and were keen to see what happened next. Both girls laughed when Nana shouted "I can't find my knickers" and really enjoyed the ending where they were found.

We think this book would appeal to primary children of all ages and one I would choose over others to read to a group of children due to it's large engaging pictures and amusing story.
