this kid (if he's for real, and I REALLY HOPE HE IS!) is just amazing. He's so spot on observing human interaction in all of his books. But today we're talking about this one 'cause it's the one the mailman delivered.
School. It's about to start! Kids (and teachers) are all excited. And a little nervous. What to expect in the coming year?
I would say this would be most useful in ... maybe second through fourth or fifth grade? Read aloud during the first couple days of school. Talk about some of the situations he mentions. Maybe have the kids write some of their own Rules for School.
"Rule #14 Make the most of it.... My favorite time is Library because books are awesome. Tip: If you don't like a book, don't worry. There is a book for everyone. Ask the librarian to help you." (43-44)
Warms my heart.
And of course ... I love, love, love, love, LOVE the illustrations.
I will try to tone down the effusive adjectives. This is just a cute book.
