A story which everyone can relate to, Alexander's mastery of the English language and rich vocabulary, coupled with colourful illustrations on every page, brings the story to life, leaving all readers, regardless of age, captivated and totally absorbed. The lockdown was one of those uncertain times for us all, with both adults and children having to attempt to make sense of the changing world around them.

As the lockdown measures were introduced in March 2020, social media was awash with all the things that we were missing out on. I have been a blogger for a few years now and I love to be able to read and review books for you all to look at. Thrown into this mix was all the parts of our lives that we desperately didn’t want to lose within the pandemic, such as celebrating birthdays.Lockdown Looms: Reggie’s Birthday Party will support and educate children about what they have been through throughout the pandemic. Banji Alexander, a year three teacher in London, saw his students' challenges and decided to help them cope with those intense emotions in a fictional way with his book, “Lockdown Looms: Reggie’s Birthday Party. This book was like therapy to me because some of the themes in the story are hope, determination, adapting to change, kindness, and these were skills and qualities that I wanted my pupils to gain, but they were also qualities I had to remind myself that I was capable of tuning into during that very difficult time for myself and my family.

A second lockdown was set in motion for November 5th – Roo’s birthday and would continue through to the beginning of December. He feels that people should know there is always a brighter ending to things, even if they seem bleak. Whilst we had empathy for these people, there was a small part of us thankful for the children’s birthday’s being later in the year.

This is a beautiful story written with accessible vocabulary which brings the story of the pandemic to life and is accompanied with fabulous bright and vibrant illustrations. Lockdown Looms: Reggie's Birthday Party', is written by author (and primary school teacher), Banji Alexander. Published by Grosvenor House in London, ‘Lockdown Looms: Reggie’s Birthday Party’, is written by author (and primary school teacher), Banji Alexander. I felt that it was not just a thank you to me, but it was a thank you to the whole teaching profession,” Alexander says.
