PRESCHOOL DAY HOORAY!
"What a delightful book! This story is the perfect one to read to your child who is getting ready to go to preschool! My five-year-old daughters will soon be attending so I feel fortunate to have such a wonderful story to share with them as they prepare for the next step in their life journey.".... read more  

“Jaunty rhymes describe a child's typical day at preschool. First things first: "Hi to teacher, / Coat on hook. / Run to shelf / And find a book." Later: "Find my mat / And make a nest. / Shhhh! I need to / Take a rest." Strauss's economical text is age appropriate, and Nakata's colorful, blocky illustrations give kids lots to look at.” – Horn Book

“This book provides a comforting and specific look at the school day….Hiroe Nakata’s illustrations…provide a gentle and familiar world.” - Chicago Tribune, 7/24/10
