Editorial Reviews


Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:ST. PATRICK’S DAY:“It’s exactly the same scene that’s played out in elementary schools across the country every March, and as such it will be sweetly familiar to readers…it will be deservedly welcomed by teachers in many settings.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:ST. PATRICK’S DAY:“Lizzy Rockwell’s clear, vivid spreads evoke an active learning environment. This welcome addition to the series clearly outlines the importance of this day in March on which everyone is Irish.” (School Library Journal)

Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:PRESIDENTS’ DAY:“An excellent introduction to the holiday for younger grades and a first purchase for most collections.” (School Library Journal)

Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:PRESIDENTS’ DAY:“The impressive collaboration of the Rockwell team, once again delivers a book perfect for use in the primary grades.” (Association of Children's Literature)

Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:FATHER’S DAY: “Don’t limit this book to Father’s Day-it should be enjoyed year round.” (School Library Journal)

Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:MOTHER’S DAY:“A mother-daughter team adds to a winning streak of classroom books centering on young children’s preparations for important days with this celebration of mothers... This winsome, instructive book may focus on Mother’s Day, but it can be read anytime.” (ALA Booklist)

Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:100 SCHOOL DAYS: “Preschool and kindergarten teachers looking to make the Hundred Day celebration more than a math exercise will find inspiration right here.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:CAREER DAY: “Clearly laid out and cheerfully presented, this picture book strikes just the right tone for its intended audience.” (ALA Booklist)

From the Back Cover

The kids from Mrs. Madoff's classroom—"a charmed place" (Kirkus Reviews)—are preparing for a brand-new school year!

The first day of school is full of new things. New is exciting! But it can also be scary. What will school be like this year?

Get ready to share in the excitement of the first day of school with friends old and new!

Format: Paperback
I haven't been introduced to the books of the lady Rockwells yet, but after this one I cannot wait to get a stack of others. (It appears this one was published in hardcover in 2011) This is a fabulous and reassuring story with preparations for a new school year. It is culturally diverse and full of friends. The illustrations are wonderful and there is plenty for discussion in these pages.

Thanks to HC.
