#BlogTour #BookReview for The Christmas Play Rehearsal by Sue Wickstead @rararesources @JayJayBus

The Christmas Play Rehearsal Full Tour Banner

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.



I loved this story!

The layout for the book is great the writing is clear and easy to follow and the images add so much to the story – it is a delightful story to read and I can see it being a massive hit with children!

It is a really fun story and even though my daughter is too young to really understand the story, she brought the book to me several times to have it read to her and she loved the pictures – I can’t wait to read it with her properly – it was quite clearly a hit with her!

Five stars from me, a fun plot and some lovely images too – very highly recommended!!

IMG_0766 (2)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 BewbushPlaybus 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 lovely review I am glad you and your daughter enjoyed the book.
    Today the class were telling me all about their play.
    Their problem today was that the teacher in charge was away.
    A different problem I think
