Fred talks about why he loves preschool, and Rockwell’s bright artwork shows what fun he has there, from the first moments, when he puts his backpack and vest in his cubby with his name and the teacher says, “Good morning.” He plays at the water table, tells a story in circle time about how a raccoon tipped over the garbage in his yard, zooms trucks with another kid, enjoys his snack, sings with the music teacher, and more. It’s not all idyllic: one child cries when her mother leaves; another gets mad and knocks down all of Fred’s bricks; then the teacher has the boy say sorry, and the two friends play together outside. The pictures have the texture and look of a child’s artwork, set against lots of white space, and the close-up scenarios make this lots of fun for group sharing or one-on-one. Preschool. --Hazel Rochman

We also bought Maisy Goes to Preschool: A Maisy First Experiences Book and I personally like them about equally, but my daughter tends to choose the My Preschool book to read more often. The Maisy book is more simple and better for the slightly younger preschooler.
As a summary this book talks about a girl who cries at the beginning (drop off) and end of school (pick up), a classmate who is mad/frustrated, teacher intervening to apologize, children who love doing certain activities (water table, yoga, story time, paint), playing at recess and having snack.
For an entire month my daughter requested my husband and me to read this at story time each night. We also love the colorful illustrations and highly recommend this to all toddlers entering or finishing up preschool.
I highly recommend this book for any preschooler or kid who will be starting preschool. It's a great way to get your kid's feet wet!
