Sarah Goes to School by Pauline Oud

At the school gate Sarah waves at Mom, then runs away. She sees Lisa! And Adam! And some of her other friends. There's also a boy who Sarah has never seen before. There is a new boy at Sarah's school, and his name is Ian. Sarah helps him out. She shows him the block corner, the chair he can use, and the games they play outside on the playground. Sarah has another fun day at school -- and makes a new friend too! In this cheerful picture book, a girl shares her knowledge of her school with a new boy and makes a friend in the process. Pauline Oud tells a familiar story and illustrates it with warm and colorful pictures. For children aged 3 and up.

About the Author

Pauline Oud was born in 1963 in Hilversum, The Netherlands. She has been working as an illustrator for over 15 years now. After her graduation from art school in 1985 she worked as an artist and art teacher for a while before applying her knowledge to her first love; children's books. Before she starts working, she likes to start her days with an hour running to clear her head and think about her drawings. She likes to collect children's books, because they give her so much inspiration. When she is out of inspiration, she also likes to visit the Museum of medieval Art to stare at the books her colleagues have illustrated some 700 years ago. She currently lives in Bilthoven (the Netherlands) with her husband and her two children Roos and Walt.
