"Robinson (Last Stop on Market Street) gives the school just a hint of visual personification in his flattened, paint-and-collage artwork, as Rex (Moonday) deftly juggles well-placed jokes and keen insights into feeling comfortable in one’s own skin―or bricks, as the case may be."―Publishers Weekly, starred
"Using his signature, simple style, Robinson alternates scenes of the building and its interiors with shots that show the boisterously diverse kids' first day.A unique point of view makes this school book stand out."―Kirkus Reviews, starred
"Sure to become a staple for first days of school everywhere."―Horn Book, starred
"This charming reversal of first-day-of-school nerves will delight little ones
and help put their own anxieties at bay."―Booklist, starred
"An essential purchase that is simultaneously funny, frank, and soothing. A perfect first day read-aloud."― School Library Journal, starred
"A delightful, perspective-tweaking back-to-school picture book."―Shelf Awareness, starred
"Anthropomorphization of the whole building is a new and promising approach for school-shy youngsters, and it’ll make the already school-positive want to give their beloved building a hug."―Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred

The challenge with back-to-school books is that they can get pretty blah and repetitive. They all have the same plot. Students are starting a new school year and everyone is nervous. School’s First Day of School follows this same premise, but with an Adam Rex twist! The entire story is told from the perspective of the school, and the school is named “School!”
It’s just adorable!
School is a brand new school, and she is nervous to have the students arrive. She confides her nerves to her best friend the janitor. The janitor offers her some support and encouragement before she begins her new year.
In the beginning, School does not like the kids that have arrived at her school. They are noisy, and they make such a mess. But as children so often do, they slowly start to win over School. Through the love of one little, freckled-face girl, School’s heart beings to open up to those she shares her walls with.
In the end, School may just learn to be happy that she is a school.
