Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the HOW TO . . . books:
 
“A new hit this year is How to Catch Santa. . . . The picture book offers lighthearted tips on how kids can steal a glimpse of Mr. Elusive, aka Santa.” —USA Today (How to Catch Santa)
 
“Belongs on the shelf of every kid who loves a grandparent.” —The Salt Lake Tribune (How to Babysit a Grandpa)
 
“The charm of its premise and the clear bond between the generations will have kids and grandparents giggling together.” —School Library Journal (How to Babysit a Grandma)

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2—The sweetness of this book will entice readers young and old. Reagan provides guides to basic school rules, celebrations like 100 Days and class plays, and even the bittersweet moment of moving up a grade. These are meant to put kids at ease with school situations and let them know they're not alone. As the most recent edition in the "How To…" series, this book plays to adult readers, amusing parents, while giving kids a light structure for their student experience, and reflecting gently but profoundly on the special role that teachers play in their students lives. Though the flow of the book is a bit unfamiliar—definitely a "how to" rather than a narrative—it is an effective method to build empathy and appreciation for the formative day-to-day work of educators. Wildish's illustrations are soft, expressive, full of hugs and smiles and silly faces, and add to the light and upbeat tone. Missteps like a thin-lined font choice and an oddly light hand on character faces distract from but don't derail the experience. VERDICT A tender read-together for an early elementary or pre-K audience, this is a surprisingly thoughtful read for parents and teachers to share and discuss with children.—Emilia Packard, Austin, TX --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 18, 2018
A new teacher to class is given reassurance in the areas she might be feeling nervous about.

First published in the USA, the text is now tweaked for the UK market, but there remains a US slant to it, e.g. ‘bathroom’, rather than ‘toilet/s’ & it has ‘Sports Day’ in the spring.

An idea of what is between the colourful covers is currently available via the 'LOOK INSIDE’ ’ facility & the stock images above.

The book is dedicated:

📝 ‘For teachers everywhere. You are truly amazing. ~ J. R.’

Acquired to share with a ‘new teacher’ who is similar in appearance to the one in the pictures (although I will be in serious trouble if she reads this)!

From an adult point of view, this story is on the funny side, enhanced by the illustrations that are great accompaniments for the text, IMO.
After all, even 'the' most planned teacher can have a bad day, usually when the Head just happens to pop in to class and everything has just gone wrong!

From a starting school point of view, I admit to being confused, as the children in the book are already very knowledgeable about their school. Possibly, it is aimed at someone starting in a new school rather than general reception class intake.
The children are happy little souls for the best part with just the odd perplexed expression or sad faces when ‘rain ruins everything’ (not sure why?).
Iguanas, naked mole rats, hummingbirds, howler monkeys & Venus flytraps, although promoting opportunities for research, are probably a bit odd for most and I am personally not keen on the use of the word ‘nope’ with little ones.
