From School Library Journal
PreS-K—Listeners will enjoy spending the school day with Bailey the dog in this funny audiobook. Children will find his antics humorous from the moment the early bird wakes Bailey up and al throughout his eventful day at school, which includes a party for his teacher, a trip to the nurse's office, and the school bus ride home. The narration by Kirby Heyborne, who skillfully gives a distinctive voice to each of the characters, makes it easy to follow along with or without the book. A fun story to read and listen to. Recommended.—Amy Joslyn, Fairport Public Library, NY --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
Praise for Harry Bliss
"Bliss creates a thrilling sense of place." ― Publishers Weekly (review of Louise, The Adventures of a Chicken)
"The sly humor in both the first-person narrative and the speech-balloon comments is amplified in the expressive, ink-and-watercolor illustrations by New Yorker cartoonist Bliss." ― Booklist (review of Countdown to Kindergarten)

This book is especially fun and important for your child when they are entering school for the first time. Kids going into kindergarten can really relate to little Bailey the dog going to school.
Bailey loves to go to school but he is so easily distracted! There's the squirrel who is constantly teasing Bailey. It's always hard to remember to be on time for the school bus because there are so many interesting sticks in his yard.
The book takes you and your grand babies or children through an entire day with Bailey at school. He loves to go to school and the kids in his class love having Bailey there with them.
The story covers every aspect and hour of a normal and typical day at school -- putting belongings into his little cubby, saying good morning to his teacher, visiting the school nurse, writing on the chalk board, giving a report, art class, and everyone's favorite part of the school day -- lunch!
Little children going to school the first time will be able to relate well to Bailey's day. For those little ones not yet attending school but will shortly, this book will help them see how much fun school can be -- even if there isn't a dog in your class.
The illustrations are adorable and I love how Bailey's thoughts are in a bubble over his little head. The kids in his class are fun too and they also give us their two cents worth in the thought department.
My little grand daughter had some good giggles while being read this book. She will start kindergarten next year and was full of questions regarding school. She thought it was great fun that a dog would go to school and have to do homework.
All in all, a cute little book for your little ones.
