Pick a topic related to school, and you'll find a poem about it here. Whether you're in pre-K or high school, these cats have tales to tell about their day ... from math to history, from your backpack to lunch in the cafeteria.
The poems are humorous and light, guaranteeing a smile if not a laugh with each one. The pictures are vibrant, too, making it a great sibling read when there are students of multiple ages at home.
Although our kindergartner hasn't encountered all of the activities described in the poems, s/he is familiar enough with school and its paraphernalia (like backpacks) to enjoy the humor. S/He especially liked watching the animal students.
What a fun read. There is plenty to enjoy (or reminisce) about being in school when we were young.
This is a collection of poems in a picture-book format.
Although there isn't much to "teach" from the book, it does create an opportunity to encourage kids to write poems about everyday things and events.

Buy. This is a fun read all year 'round, but will be particularly memorable as a back-to-school classic.
