SYNOPSIS: Spend the day at school and join the little girl in everything she does in a day—from breakfast to bedtime. Meet her classmates and try to spot what each friend is up to in every lesson throughout the book. Can you guess what they want to be when they grow up? This reassuring introduction to the school day for little ones has bright, friendly artwork and is perfect for children about to go off to school for the first time.
MY THOUGHTS: “Going to School’, as it’s title suggests, is a good starting point for the pre-K set. Those parents/guardians whose little ones are anxious about staring school full time will find a friendly, accurate representation of what to expect. Simple yet eye-catching illustrations will help these younger readers follow along and stay focused.
It may also be of help to those students who are transitioning from half day to full day kindergarten. It’s a cute book and younger readers are likely to enjoy it. I give it 3 stars.
