PreSchool-Grade 1–The young rabbits from Bunnies on the Go
(2003) and Bunny Christmas
(2004, both HarperCollins) head off to Cottontail School. From walking into the classroom with Mom to packing-up time at the end of the day, these bunnies engage in many delightful and exciting activities. Rhyming verses describe show-and-tell, learning time, music, recess, snack time, science, a field trip, art, storytime, etc. Miglio's colorful pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations capture all the action. Children will enjoy viewing the detailed illustrations and discovering the interesting places and people they will encounter during their first year of school.–Ely M.

PreS-K. Welcome to the first day at Cottontail School, where dressed bunnies quickly adjust to their new routine: show-and-tell, learning time, music time, recess, snack time, science, field trip to a fire station, art time, play time, cleanup, and stories. Like a real first day of school, it's impossibly packed with new experiences. For the armchair traveler to the kindergarten classroom, though, it works quite well to show the variety of pleasant things that a preschooler can look forward to. The rhythmic, rhymed couplets roll along cheerfully, pointing out particulars of the day's activities. Large in scale and quite detailed, the colorful artwork offers plenty of opportunities for young children to observe a variety of bunnies enjoying their big day at school.
