Falling in line with the how-to style Jean Reagan is so famous for, this one will be another winner.
It is so adorable. As a teacher, I know that the students aren't the only ones nervous about going to school, remembering all of the rules, or knowing exactly where everything is at. Teachers can be also. With that said, this is an adorable picture book that beautifully describes how the students care for their teacher and let her in on the tips of how to manage in such a scary environment. The concept is priceless.
My favorite line in this marvelous book was during science as the students watched a caterpillar turn into a butterfly, "How sometimes, magic happens very slowly." It is a perfect metaphor for the transition the children are creating as they care for their teacher.
I believe most customers will think this is a must buy for only teachers to be read in school, but I see this book as a MUST BUY for parents to read to their little ones the night before the first day of school. It will demonstrate to their little ones what an important job they have, to help their teacher.
Plus, teachers, this book would be a wonderful springboard for some awesome questions of how students know how to live a happy life within a school environment.
Kudos to Lee Wildish for such a beautiful book whose illustrations would charm any student or parent, teacher, or librarian like me.
Another hit for Reagan.
