Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-This title follows 20 youngsters through their busy day at nursery school. Preschoolers will savor the details of Norling's catalog of classroom and playground accessories, toys, and activities. Even the bathroom experience is comically yet modestly depicted. Some spreads are flanked by sidebar close-ups of items to search for within the central drawing. In addition, viewers can look for a favorite character on each page, since Norling's cartoons, done in watercolor pencil and ink, artfully create diverse personalities for each of the students. There's a lot to like about Little School.

From Booklist

PreS. What a delightful jumble! Small squares and chock-full spreads introduce life at the Little School. Twenty preschoolers--Chen, Indira, Petros, and Habib among them--start the day and head off to school in 20 different forms of conveyance: car, bike, stroller, piggyback, train, etc. Various classroom items are highlighted in the multicolored squares, and against pure white backgrounds, children sing, eat, make a mess, even go to the bathroom. At the end of the day, the kids go home to watch TV, practice an instrument, or play, and night finds the 20 children tucked in their beds, as each square shows. Norling manages to keep track of all the little ones and helps little lookers follow them through their busy day. Energetically yet sweetly illustrated, this will occupy little ones no matter how many times they look at it. Ilene Cooper

Sending your toddler off to school is never easy, but having a book to help you (both) prepare makes it a tad bit easier to let them go. Little School follows 20 toddlers through their typical day at school, complete with drop off, play time, snack, quiet time, nap, outdoor time, pick up and saying goodbye. Vocabulary words sprinkle the pages to help name certain activities and objects found in the classroom. Each toddler pictured here has their own personality as you will see if you follow a different "friend" each time you read it. Plenty of details and silly situations allow children to read the illustrations, as you read the text aloud.

I paid extra to get this book early and it came very late. The book is good. A bit pricey but good.
