9780099488446: Alfie and the Big Boys

Alfie's Nursery School is right next door to the Big School where the big boys go. Alfie and Bernard wish that they could be friends with the most popular big boy, Ian Barger, but Ian never takes any notice of the little kids. One Saturday morning, mom takes Alfie and Annie Rose to a plant pot sale. Alfie hasn't been there long when he spots Ian Barger screaming and yelling that he wants his mommy. Ian grabs Alfie's hand and holds onto him very tightly until his mom returns.

About the Author:

Shirley Hughes has written more than 200 books, creating enduring characters like Alfie and Dogger, who have thrilled children and adults alike with their tales of growing up and everyday discovery. Her many awards include the Kate Greenaway Medal and the prestigious Eleanor Farjeon Award for her services to children's literature.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1—Alfie attends Parkside Nursery School, which is next door to the Big School. He and his friend Bernard admire the older boys, and Ian stands out as a leader on the playground. However, he never takes notice of the younger children. On Saturday at the garden shop, however, Ian begins to cry when his mum leaves him at the play area, and Alfie is there to soothe him. The boys' mothers soon pick their children up and ultimately become friendly. When Ian and Bernard visit Alfie, the big boy plays quietly with Alfie's little sister, Annie Rose. Alfie and Bernard think that lining up dolls is babyish, but then all of the children play a rough-and-tumble game outdoors. Hughes's protagonist remains an extremely likable and highly recognizable character. The realistic line and color illustrations are filled with activity and expression; augmenting characterization, they combine with an understated text to provide a gentle commentary on daily life. A British setting provides the backdrop for this universal story of family, childhood experiences, friendship, and fears.—Maria B. Salvadore, formerly at Washington DC Public Library
