Blog Tour Review: David’s Bin Day – Sue Wickstead

Today is my spot on the blog tour for ‘David’s Bin Day’ by Sue Wickstead. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on the tour and the review copy I received to review.

About the Author:

Authors 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.

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

My Review:

I received a physical copy of ‘David’s Bin Day’ by Sue Wickstead in return for my honest review.

This Children’s picture book follows David as he likes to watch out for the bin men each week.

He likes to wear a bobble hat just like the bin men, and he decides he wants to tidy up.

Suddenly things around the house start to disappear, including an important letter for Daddy.

Where are the missing items? Does it have something to do with David?

This is a really sweet and lovely book to read, and I loved reading it with my daughter.

Not only does it show children about one of the jobs that they may not think of, but it also shows the importance of keeping things tidy.

I must admit, I was laughing thinking about what I would do if this was my child, but I did love how the family reacted.

Overall, a sweet and lovely children’s book with a message to keep things tidy.

My Rating:

💜💜💜💜.5 /5

H Around The World Review (My Daughter Age 8):

I loved the pictures in the book and liked listening to mummy read.

  1. I’m always pleased to read and recieve a review but especially so when it comes from the children too.
    Whenever I have had an opportunity to tell or read a story in schools the children love them.
    I hope that schools and libraries have copies too.
