School Library Journal Review
PreS-K--Parr's signature bright, bold illustrations introduce an exciting day at school. Kids--and some creatures--with different skin colors including green, purple, and blue, go to school on foot, by bike, skateboard, bus, car, and flying saucer. They participate in myriad activities, including eating snacks, napping, visiting the library, painting, sharing stories, and exercising. The small children with round heads and smiley faces stand with arms open wide indicating their joy and inviting readers into their sunny world. Little details fill each page creating scenes that will jump-start discussions: The "We share our things" page reveals a show and tell session in which a skunk shows his frog and worm to the class while a girl waits her turn to talk about her robot which hovers nearby. VERDICT Each page offers one short, concise sentence creating a story geared for preschoolers and kindergartners and works well as a beginning reader. The energetic artwork and nonstop fun activities will have youngsters eager to go to school.--Maryann H. Owen, Oak Creek Public Library WI
