I thought that this book was great, my daughter is starting school next year and she is very excited to go so this book was great to show her the kinds of things that will happen and some of the people that she will see during the day.

I have read a couple of books in this series now and they are nice, bright and clear and I like the way they have been put together - great to use for me as a mum to bring up the topic of School too!  It is 5 stars from me for this one - very highly recommended!

This book doesn't appeal to me or my kids since we homeschool. It seems to be overly simplified and the teacher looks like a taller child and not really like an adult. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for my digital review copy.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an electronic copy to read and review. 

This is an adorable little book about teachers and how they help kids. The rhyming narrative and colourful pictures will be so engaging for young children. I would gift this to my child's daycare or a preschool as I think it is the perfect book for that age group.

This a short board book about what children do at school and how the teacher helps them. They start by hanging up their coats and then sitting down to count. I wish on this page they would’ve included all the number blocks 1-10, they only included a couple. Next, they dance to music and play some instruments. Next, they do some arts and crafts and finish out with storytime. The story ends by saying thank you to all the teachers.

I enjoyed the pictures throughout this book. They were bright and cartoonish. I also loved that they included a child in a wheelchair. I think it’s important that all children are represented in books we give them so it’s nice to see the diversity.

I reviewed this book via the kindle app so it’s difficult to see what the “windows” do on each page. This is definitely a book to have physically and not in eBook form.

I think this would be nice for preschoolers or younger.

I got this on Netgalley in exchange for an honest review!
I enjoyed the positive outlook on schools and the role teacher have in the pupils lives, but overall wish this book was longer and showed more specific examples, instead of just generic class subjects.

This is a lovely children's book which has beautiful bright and colourful illustrations.  I really enjoyed reading this book with my daughter and she loved to see the different lessons that can be done at school, along with the people who help run the school.  She also loved the counting aspect of the book and the characters of the book.

Many thanks to the author, publisher and netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Lovely, short, fun book ideal for children who are new to school. I loved the bright colours and the awesome illustrations.  It’s an uplifting and positive book which shows great appreciation for teachers and people who work in schools!  Lovely.

I was quiet excited about the concept of this book but was disappointed by how short it was. I think it has the potential to be longer and introduce more concepts to children.

This was a fun little book that focused on showing children to be thankful for the people that comprise their day. I think it would work best for a child entering school for the first time. The illustrations were cute and the text was bold, fun, and added to the general positive feel of the book.

I absolutely love this nonfiction series that Quarto is coming out with. The story and illustrations are so well done. I was so thrilled to see the diversity in this book as I was reading - people of different backgrounds and people with disabilities.  Seeing someone with a disability portrayed in this book hits close to home for me. My aunt became disabled as a young child and she has frequently talked about how she rarely saw, read or even heard about anyone else with disabilities growing up.  It is so important for young children to see all sorts of different people to help them become familiar with the differences of others as some are not exposed to that in their community/circle. This series is a must have for every daycare and preschool classroom.

Thank you to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group – words & pictures for an advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review.

I think that it's absolutely vital that we aid children in transition to new environments and learning about the environments that they have to be in at some time or another, school being one of this. This book is incredibly well written and easy to understand and would be an absolutely huge help to children. I really hope more children get to read this book.

A nice short story to introduce children to what their average school day may entail.
With very bright, eye-catching illustrations which will appeal to younger children

This short book offers a cheerful introduction to school. It depicts some of the fun activities that the youngest students will experience when they get there. The illustrations are bright, appealing and inclusive while the rhyming text should nicely engage young children. This book can help demystify school and help children to look forward to beginning their education.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
