Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K-- An ABC book which goes through a preschooler's typical day in a day care center. At the start of the day, "Adam asks for applesauce" while his parents fix breakfast. In the colorful picture, lots of "A" words can be spotted, such as Dad's apron with an artichoke on it and sister's bib decorated with acorns. Each page is a delight as different children are pictured getting ready for and going to the day care center. Their day is lively and realistic, with all the activities lending themselves easily to this alphabet format. Children and teachers are of mixed gender and race, and their faces are delightfully expressive. Phillips includes a useful list of the objects and colors found in each picture. Some are obvious such as umbrella for the "U" page, but the upside-down bear is more difficult. The book is cleverly done, but is not too obscure for preschoolers to understand. It succeeds as an alphabet book, a game, a tool to reassure children about going to day care, and a mildly entertaining story. --Janet E. Fricker, Warminster Township Free Lib . , PA

Format: Library Binding
Twenty Six children & their teachers get ready and go to their day care. Each child's and or teacher's name begins with a letter of the alphabet.

This would be a cute and helpful book for children who are about to begin day care or who are already in day care.

The book features multi-cultural children which is always nice for your child to see another child who looks like them. On the last page it tells you other words on each page that has also been added to the page so the book is also a book where your child can also find other words that start with the same letter.

This would also be good for parents with children who are named in the book. Here are the children's & teachers names: Adam, Brenda, Corey, Daniel, Ms.Edwards, Franky, Gloria, Heather, Irene, Joshua, Kimberly, Luis, Meryl, Mr. Nash, Oliver, Paula, Quentin, Rosalba, Sam (boy), Talia, Umeko, Vincent, William, Xavier, Yolanda and Zoe.
