What did you like about the book? Bouncy rhyming text and bright colorful illustrations make this a great addition to first day at school books.  A little boy joins his multiethnic classmates and his teachers for a fun day at preschool.  He hangs his coat on a hook and the day begins.  There is free play, show and tell, writing numbers and letters, reading, recess, art and music and then it is time to go home. Little ones heading off to school for the first time will find this reassuring.  A fun look at preschool.
