Book Review “David’s Bin Day” by Sue Wickstead

Children’s Book. Age range, 3/8 years

David’s Bin Day

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

REVIEW ~ K.M. ~ 4 STARS written up on behalf of K.M by Niki Preston

David’s Bin Day was read and reviewed by my Grandaughter, K.M. Although she is 8 years old, so at the upper age that this book is aimed at, she still enjoyed it.

K.M. Review

This book has some really lovely pictures. I thought David was really cute and enjoyed his game of being a bin man. It was funny. His family are nice and the story is good at showing little kids that pretend play is fun and good for their imagination. This book is very easy to read and the story is fun and made me laugh.

I think this book is very good for little children and will help them to learn to play and to get an interest in reading. I love reading, I enjoyed David’s Bin Day a lot.

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.

One thought on “Book Review “David’s Bin Day” by Sue Wickstead

  1. Thank you for your review.
    Indeed my grandson enjoys this book, he is only 2 and a half.
    He has his woolly bobble hat and high viz jacket to wear and he is facinated by the noisy bin man passing by. – as well as the diggers and builders on the road.
    The real David, loved playing and would make us giggle with his antics. (He still does although he is much older now.)
