Back of Book:
Written in tongue-in-cheek instructional style, a class of adorable students gives tips and tricks for getting a teacher ready—for the first day of school, and all the events and milestones that will follow getting their teacher ready is really getting themselves ready. Filled with charming role-reversal humor, this is a playful and heartwarming celebration of teachers and students, and the perfect gift for back-to-school readiness or graduation.
This is such a perfect first day of school book. I would say it is ideal for grades Kindergarten-2nd grade. Each page shows another part of a normal school day. The students show their teacher where her desk is, where to put her lunch, etc. As a Kindergarten teacher, I can admit that I have just as many butterflies as the students on the first day of school. This story shows students that even teachers need help sometimes. The illustrations are whimsical and so fun. They walk students through all the things that they will learn over the year. Holiday Programs, The 100th Day of School, and Field Day. Every aspect of this book brought a smile to my face and warmed my heart. I highly recommend this story as a night before school book, or a first day story. (It also makes a perfect teacher gift).
