School Library Journal Review
PreS-Gr 1-Burris spotlights the newness of the first day of school in this fun-loving book. A group of children enters their classroom and takes note of the important details about where they will spend their days, such as the cubbies for their backpacks and name cards on their desks. The author enumerates special classroom activities, covering circle time, snack time, and quiet time. The humor is spot-on. One child comments during snack time that his daddy is a "cookie monster" and another child, during quiet time, remarks, "Kevin is hibernating TOO LOUD!" Burris's signature artwork is rendered using ink pens, pencils, and digital brushes featuring minimal backgrounds and cheerful expressions on the characters' faces. VERDICT Sure to be appreciated by Burris's young fans, this is a perfect read-aloud for the start of school.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA © Copyright 2018.
