What did you like about the book? A young boy experiences a fun day at school. The rhyming text is complemented by the bright and colorful digital illustrations of a multicultural class of children and their teacher. From saying goodbye to Mom, “ Bye now, Mommy, you can go!” to free play, show and tell, learning writing, numbers and reading, recess, art and music, it is a very busy and fun day. This is the perfect story to read to children who will be heading of to school.
