Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a simple but thoroughly charming little gem of a book. While the story line covers no new ground–four animals enjoy typical school activities–the presentation raises it to the next level. For one thing, Sierra has told the tale in effortless rhyme. For another, the rebus format makes it a perfect lap-sit choice with a parent or caregiver reading the words and a child “reading” the easily decipherable pictures. The illustrations . . . are bright and cheerful and should have considerable appeal for the new-to-school set."
- School Library Journal

"Just right for new kindergartners and preschoolers who cannot yet read words, this is one school story that they will be able to help in reading. The draw of Sierra’s latest is the rhyming verse that is interspersed with rebus pictures, allowing children to chime in and participate in the telling . . . Davick’s brightly colored digital illustrations show all the quintessential elements of school—from the playground and bus outside to the decorations and supplies inside. Throughout, kindness, sharing and being helpful are modeled by the anthropomorphized cartoon animals in both the artwork and the nursery-rhyme cadences. A comforting and empowering build-up to the big day—kindergarten (or preschool), here we come!

Format: Hardcover
With a rapidly expanding new generation in our large extended family, I've been on the lookout for "early reader" books.

Each child has already been gifted with other wonderful titles from award-winning illustrator Linda Davick, including 10 Trim-the-Tree'ers, 10 Easter Egg Hunters: A Holiday Counting Book, and 10 Trick-or-Treaters.

Now, for the children who will enter preschool, kindergarten or first grade this year, I am happy to have "We Love Our School."

The "search inside" feature isn't available on this book. I wish the publishers would post at least two pages so potential readers can see just how sweet, creative, and entertaining this "read together" book is.

For example, the first spread features a big-eyed frog sailing to school on the S.S. Ribbett. You know those rubbery-looking shoes some adults are wearing now, with the toes? I've often thought they have an amphibian look to them, and those are exactly the shoes worn by this frog. This is the kind of clever "inside joke" detail that makes Linda Davick's work as enjoyable to adults as to children. (You can check out more of her work at her website LindaDavick dot com.)

On the left side of the spread, across from the full-page illustration, are the first words:

It's the first day of school,
Said the [illustration of the frog] in the pool
"I must put on my [illustration of those funny, toed shoes] and my coat.

I purchased this book for my wee next-door neighbors, based on their fun with the Ten Trim-the Tree'ers book. And they have enjoyed "We Love Our School" so much! The rhymes are easy for them to read and anticipate...but I have to admit, they love looking at the illustrations. The small, lilac ballerina mouse seems to be a favorite. (They have had long discussions about 'who they would be' ...seems the mouse wins!) Enjoy this book with all the young ones in your life!

I lucked into another rebus story book and then purchased this. It's perfect for little ones who are beginning to show interest in reading.

Got this book (and other books) to mentally prep my son for his first day of school. It worked like a charm - he was so looking forward to going to school and has been such ever since the first day.

Found this book at our local library and just fell in love with it.
I love how my 2.5 yr old can read along with me by saying what the cute little pictures are.
I can tell he enjoys being able to read along with us too!
Now I just hope I can find more books like this, can anyone point me to more books like this one?
I searched Judy Sierra in the library but none of her other books are as cute and fun like this one.
Highly highly recommend for reading along with your preschooler -
