A lively introduction to school that builds excitement in first-time students
In this lively board book, a young boy starts his first day of school not knowing what to expect. Follow along as he explores his classroom, makes new friends, and enjoys all the creative and interesting activities school can offer. My First Day of School helps first-time students, from preschoolers to kindergartners, understand what happens at school, while providing parents the opportunity to answer questions their child may have. An enthusiastic narrator and bright, cheerful illustrations will have first-time students eagerly anticipating their first day of school. Ages 2-5.
A redheaded boy named Sam narrates his first day at school in this upbeat board book from Adams (Happy Birthday to You!
) and Walkley (God Made the Sun
). Beyond acknowledging that This school looks kind of big to me,
Sam scarcely betrays an ounce of nervousness, instead befriending, playing with, and learning alongside his classmates, presumably preschoolers. Walkley's soft, brightly colored illustrations have a sunniness to match Sam s attitude. Adams maintains a steady rhythm, but her rhymes may be too chirpy and forced for some readers (My classroom s great. We have a pet./ My teacher says his name is Chet
). Nervous school goers, though, may take heart from Sam's confidence. Ages 2-5. --Publishers Weekly
