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.

My Review

This is a delightful little children’s book telling the story of a class of young schoolmates putting together a school nativity play.

The book will appeal to young readers, it has lots of humour which little ones will love and at just twenty pages it is just the right length for a bedtime story. The illustrations really stand out in this book, as you can see from the front cover. The pictures actually tell the story so that younger children can follow the nativity story themselves.

A book which will be a favourite Christmas read for lots of children this year.

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.

  1. Thank you for your review and I am glad you enjoyed the book. Today visiting another school singing songs and lots of creative festive Christmas fun. Oh and a few songs too

  2. Christmas plays must surely be over in school for another year.
    Maybe the event is now just a memory, but hopefully a good memory.
