Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Do you have a little one trotting off to preschool or kindergarten? September brings crisp days and new classes. Kids anticipating new challenges may experience conflicting emotion—excitement, anxiety, pride, sadness at leaving behind the familiar. Back to School combines a simple text with photos of kids in classrooms throughout the world. For example, the double-page spread about transport to school shows a yellow American school bus, a Peruvian boat, a Bolivian horse-drawn wagon, and a Filipino rickshaw. Before the first day of school, you might pay a reassuring visit to your child's classroom and then share this book, pointing out differences and similarities. The foreword was written by Dr. Marilyn Jachetti Whirry, National Teacher of the Year 2000. 2001, Charlesbridge, $15.95 and $6.95. Ages 3 to 6. Reviewer:Mary Quattlebaum
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Clear, colorful photographs capture the day-to-day life of schoolchildren around the globe. The book has a minimal text and one or two captioned photos per page. Various types of schools and classrooms are pictured including a group of students studying outdoors in Mali and a homeschooling situation in France. How children get to class is described and illustrated with examples ranging from a horse-drawn wagon in Bolivia and a boat in Peru to a school bus in the U.S. What children wear and what they do once they get there are also explored. A great back-to-school title for teachers to share with their students.-Christina F. Renaud, Millis Public Schools, MA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
