Boomer Goes to Schoolby Constance W. McGeorge, Mary Whyte, Holden Hardcastle
In Boomer's Big Day, Boomer and his family moved to a new town. Now Boomer is going to school! Like many new students, Boomer finds that going to school can be a bit confusing . . . at first. But in the end, he discovers that school is a great place for friends, learning, and fun! Plus, this version includes audio and a read-along setting.
McGeorge has skillfully blown up one incident into an entire book, with a well-timed text that offers a dog's version of events in school: "A loud bell rang. A grown-up started talking. Everyone sat down and listened." Much of the humor arises from the matter- of-fact text and unexpected events in the pictures: In the scene of "pictures to paint," paw prints in bright colors trail across paper and floor, and in the illustration of "games to play," Boomer is seen stealing the soccer ball and disrupting the action. Whyte's tricks with point of view make ordinary classroom scenes fresh, e.g., she shows the arrival of children at school from high overhead and a close-up of clapping hands at Boomer's big moment. He's an endearing hero, just right for preschoolers curious about where their older siblings go during the day.
Whyte's lively watercolors expressively capture the energy of primary-schoolers and the array of emotions Boomer experiences during his first day at school. Booklist
