  • Realistic and Relevant

    As an early childhood teacher, I’m always looking for fantastic picture books that are well written, have beautiful illustrations and are relatable to the preschool audience. This book ticks all the boxes and is my go-to book for children about to start school.

  • full of stereotypes

    by on

    very disappointed in this book which was meant to encourage preschoolers to learn about starting school - I found that it particularly stereotyped Asian boys as being extremely shy and only good at maths! it certainly didn't encourage my son - the story made school sound pretty dull.
