School (First Time series) ISBN: 9781846434907
Lewis, Jan
Published by Childs Play Intl Ltd, 2013
This series of books, all of which are laminated and wipeable and should last a long time, have wonderfully accessible pictures, and the text of each one is purely dialogue. In this story, the dialogue is between parent and child and teacher and children, and while this may seem strange at first, it actually matches perfectly with the information in the pictures. The little boy who begins this story is going to school for the first time, and being a confident small person, shows no signs of fear, only asking, 'Who will help me find my classroom?' He is soon in the thick of things with all his new classmates, and we see them drawing, counting, writing letters, playing and singing music, having a snack, playing in the playground, using the toilets, having lunch, doing PE, talking about nature, and having a story at the end of the day. It's all good fun, and we see parents collecting children too - important to know when experiencing your first day in a new place. A lovely book in a super series.
