The Lovereading4Kids comment

Starting school is a big thing for little children and their parents and this excellent book offers masses of useful advice and bags of reassurance for all. Five little animal characters have just started school and are there to tell readers all about it; they describe a typical day’s timetable, from register through playtime, lunchtime and storytime, through to going home time. They also gently advise children on what they’ll need to know, e.g. colours, numbers, the seasons, letters of the alphabet. It’s bright and inviting to look at and the information is presented in a really friendly and accessible way. A lovely introduction to the Early Years curriculum and school life. ~ Andrea Reece
