The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. The children will listen to and begin to join in with the story ‘Lost in the toy museum’ by David Lucas. Discover the joy of reading with us, your trusted source for affordable books that do not compromise on quality. I personally would use it as a topic book for whole class use, and perhaps be able to use it within guided reading for the lower ability groups to take a closer look and discuss it further.

The toys at the museum come alive after the lights go off and have adventures, apart for old Bunting who likes to take care of the other toys and teach them the history of the museum. These toys are all based on examples of toys found over the last 100 years and highlighted in the fabulous book “Lost in the Toy Museum” by David Lucas. The illustrations and names of the toys could be useful in a phonics lesson as alliteration is used by Lucas regularly and the fun aspect of the story would bring enjoyment to the learning experience. As a child he enjoyed drawing and writing, and he went on to study at St Martin’s School of Art and then the Royal College of Art. Overall a very good quality service from this seller and I would not hesitate to recommend this seller.The children will consider the significance of the title of the book and they will make ‘wonderings’ about what might get lost. His drawings are full of detail and are brilliant for exploring with the kids as you read the story.

This book would be used in Key Stage One, and could easily be used as a topic book, as it is accessible across the curriculum for a number of different tasks. Lost in the Toy Museum was written by David Lucas and instigated from the author's memories of visiting the 'Museum of Childhood' as a youngster in Bethnal Green, in East London. David Lucas is the internationally acclaimed author/illustrator of Peanut, The Lying Carpet, Halibut Jackson, Whale, Nutmeg and The Robot and the Blue Bird.Sophie and Juliette both loved pointing things out in the pictures, even after reading the book several times. One night they decide to run away from the main character, who is not quite sure what is going on, as he think that all the toys have gotten lost. The roguery and playfulness of children is brought to the fore and the story is engaging as ignites one's inner-creativity and imagination. As it is set at night-time, it is the perfect book for bedtime and is such great fun to read that everyone is guaranteed to drift off to sleep with a smile on their face, probably desperately trying to keep an eye on their toys to see if they come to life in the middle of the night !
