Spot Goes to School by Eric Hill

Spot Goes to School is a classic Spot book by Eric Hill Spot's first day at school turns out to be an exciting adventure as he and his friends take their first steps into the world of learning. This book is the perfect tool for parents readying themselves and their children for the concept of school, and all the fun that can be had there. Young children can learn along with everyone's favourite puppy, Spot, and his friends. This new, bigger, edition, really brings this classic Spot story to life. Eric Hill was born in North London in 1927 and, apart from a brief period of evacuation, lived there for many years. His career as an artist began when he was employed as a messenger in an art studio and was encouraged to draw. Eric's son was born in 1976 and he began to write stories about a puppy to read to him at bedtime, and so Spot was born.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
