However, linguistically, it is aimed at first grade and above.
If you have a child getting ready for school, I suggest you not only read the story but also sit down and talk to your child about their teacher. In fact, if you know ahead your child's teacher's name, use it when reading the story to help make it more personal.
During my granddaughter's pre-reading time, we enjoyed rhyming books because after going through it once, she would know the rhyming word at the end of the second sentence. It is still fun to read to her, and she still loves to rhyme.
Very nice story ...
The illustrations, while simple, are clear and the kids enjoyed them. Our kids really enjoyed seeing what teachers do and looked forward to what's to come in kindergarten. This book was so good, we're thinking of buying a copy for our teachers at the end of the year to share in their classroom! Highly recommended!
There is a special guest who will be coming and every student has to be on his or her best behavior. "We practice how to read and spell. Teacher joins our show-and-tell." Of course playing outside is one of everyone's favorite activities of the day. Everyone loves to slide and run. Then it's back inside to work. "Computer work is fun, fun, fun! Teacher shows us how it's done." The days pass quickly and even though Friday and the "special guest" are arriving soon and everyone still is wide-eyed and smiling, especially the teacher!
This is a perfect little story in rhyme that doesn't miss a beat. It is the type of book that is perfect for the beginning reader as the words are easy to decipher, the story is fun and one that the young student can relate to. The artwork is simple like a modern day "Dick and Jane" and is quite appealing. I enjoyed walking through memory lane spending a week in the classroom with the children. This would be a perfect story to read during circle or storytime!
For adults, this book is a sweet reminder of all the wonderful teachers we've had in the past and how important they have been in our lives. For actual teachers who read it, they very well may be crying by the end.
The plot is simple enough. Told from the point of view of the children, each page describes what fun/learning activity happens during school and how the teacher shows them how to do new things.
OVERALL: Parents of 4-5 year-olds should really put this on your Must-Read-to-Kids list. The illustrations are perfect and the wonderful underlining message of School is Fun, Learning is Awesome is great. It's also a nice ode to teachers and shows how important they are. That's another message that everyone should learn, not just children.
Throughout the book there is a sign on the bulletin board every day that tell what day of the week it is, and a sign that states "Special Guest Coming Soon". Every time we read it we talked about the signs. We also talked about all the pictures in great detail, such as the colors of all the markers. The rhyming is great in this book, and I think I could just about read it with my eyes closed.
One lesson learned from reading this book is never ask adults what they think of kids' books, go straight to the young experts.
