This review is from: Welcome to the Aquarium: A Year in the Lives of Children (Hardcover)
I worked as a kindergarten ed. assistant for four years and I can testify that Ms. Diamond's book, "Welcome to the Aquarium," honestly reflects what happens in that first year of elementary education. It's all there: the routines, the frustrations, the socialization (or lack of), the formalized exposure to skills that will enable them as adults, and of course, the love and joy that will usually prevail when you are surrounded by a group of joyful, squirming, vibrant five year olds.
