Do you know any great books for 'Ourselves topic' for Nursery?

    We are having a broad 'Ourselves' topic for first half term in Nursery (obviously linking in with children's interests too)

    As well as daily stories I wanted to have a few 'key' books, linked to topic - e.g. family/relationships/the body that I can use to inspire activities.

    I have seen some lists online for the topic but it would be good to have some personal recommendations.

    Do you know any good ones that fit the bill? Thanks so much.
  2. Hi Scorpio 12 these are the book I will be using this time I have changed the titles alittle to suit my cohort but I enjoy reading these stories so hopefully the children will enjoy hearing them

    What can you see?

    Grannies and Grandads

    My school peg
    I also just brought My grandad is amazing and My grandma is wondeful by Nick Butterworth to add in if the children want to learn about grandparents
    Hope this gives you somewhere to start from, as the stories are the way I plan my literacy and any other actvities come from the story or children's interests

    Try your local library. They can reserve books for you, so may search through them on the shelves, to find the ones you want.

    Your LEA may have a library service for schools where you can borrow books
