My Preschool

Summary:

Accompany a little boy for a day at his preschool. From the cheerful hellos as he walks in the door through the activities the class engages in, this is a day of sharing and fun.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The positive image of what happens at preschool is a big plus.

Content Awareness Factors:

Although certainly adequate, I felt the illustrations' color was a little "washed out" and not very eye appealing.


Little Kid Reaction

He liked the story, but he didn't think much of the illustrations.

Adult Reader Reaction

This book would be the perfect vehicle for reading before a child's first day of preschool.

Type of Book:
This picture book introduces children to a school routine and may help with anxiety about new things.
Educational Themes:

Use this book to talk about preschool and what to expect. Explore the pages to describe the things in a classroom. Start with things kids are familiar with or might have at home. Take some time to talk about your child's feelings, too.

Reading Level:
0.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
6 and Up
Recommended Age To Read Together:
3 to 8
Age of child:
Read with a 4-year-old child.
Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow. This is a special situation book and I doubt it would have much use once a child is into the preschool routine.
