Product Details

Praise

“Burris highlights the sights, routines, and activities of elementary school. . . . Clever design and a consistent pattern, with each spread’s topic highlighted in yellow, a few short sentences underneath, and a scattering of dialogue balloons, make it easy for children to follow along and stay engaged. . . . And their grown-ups will be amused at how well Burris has captured the exuberance, ways of thinking, and quirks of young children. . . . The racially diverse students are round-headed, gap-toothed, expressive, and thoroughly adorable. . . . A solid addition to the back-to-school shelf.”—Kirkus Reviews

“With child-friendly simplicity, Burris offers a gentle overview of the first day of school for a class of young, ethnically diverse children. . . . Text bubbles show the students’ reactions; these scraps of enthusiastic dialogue help keep the story firmly rooted in the students’ immediate experience, as do the creative details in the uncluttered illustrations. . . . Lively and reassuring, this is a strong choice for helping new students set first-day expectations.”—Publishers Weekly

“Burris spotlights the newness of the first day of school in this fun-loving book. . . . The author enumerates special classroom activities, covering circle time, snack time, and quiet time. The humor is spot-on. . . . Sure to be appreciated by Burris’s young fans, this is a perfect read-aloud for the start of school.”—School Library Journal
