David’s Bin Day - Sue Wickstead

#BlogTour #DavidsBinDay #Jayjay @JayJayBus @rararesources

"David's playtime adventure stirs up a bit of trouble in this sweet book about playing pretend." Sarah Flores, Write Down the Line"


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?

My Review

Sue Wickstead's books have been a must read in our household since discovering her wonderful tales in 2019.

My son Max and I have been lucky enough to be involve in a fair few Blog Tours and for one book (Gloria The Summer Fun Bus) he even won the chance to have a character named after him!

We look forward to each book and read them again and again! My sons favourite remain " A Spooky Tale!" here are our previous reviews below!

What child has never been fascinated by the bin lorry! My son always loved to wave at the bin men and we as a family recycle as much as is possible so this book was perfect for us we loved Davids quest for rubbish and finding out the bin man role!

An absolutely charming read with some beautiful illustrations and and engaging story that makes reading fun and involved for children.

I full recommend Sue's books for home and early years setting alike you are missing out on a real treat to not share these with the children in your lives!

Here is my youngest "Mini Twist's own review...

This story was funny! I like David and his mission to find out about bin men and rubbish and his dads letter.

I like the pictures too they have so many colours! Thank you for letting me read your new book!

Author 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.
