Hello, everyone! Today, we read School’s First Day Of School, written by Adam Rex and illustrated by Christian Robinson! This is a very cute story about how the first day of school can be nerve-wracking for everyone, even the school itself.
One summer, they build a special building on an empty lot, and they name it Frederick Douglass Elementary. School thinks that’s a very nice name for himself, and he enjoys spending his days with Janitor, who comes to clean him. He tells Janitor as much, only to be surprised by his reply: soon, School will be filled with teachers and children who come to learn and play! How scary! Will they like School? Will they be nice to him? Will he make any friends like Janitor? The story follows School through his tumultuous first day and shows that even School gets first-day jitters.
This was a very sweet book. The illustrations are cute and colorful, and really bring School and his inhabitants to life, and the story is just great. It’s perfect for any child who might be feeling a bit unsure about heading to school. The length is fine for baby bookworms, but probably even better for older, school-aged children. We enjoyed it! Baby Bookworm approved!
