Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Every aspect of a perfect day in preschool is captured with perky rhymes and appealing illustrations in this highly-accessible picture book. The illustrations are well matched to the text as the day is described, with all of the activities of a typical day depicted. The really cute bunnies are a busy bunch as they participate in "show-and-tell," art time, story time, music time, snack time—all of the times a youngster could expect to experience in a preschool day. This class even takes a field trip and explores the neighborhood's community helpers. The book is sprinkled with the usual "rules" like washing hands before eating, sharing, listening, and helping to clean up. The classroom is shown with lots of things to learn as part of the decorations or bulletin board decorations or blackboard writings—a clever way to get listeners to participate by getting them to tell everything they see in the pictures (the alphabet, numbers, colors, etc.). All in all, it is a perfect way to introduce a first timer to what will happen in school, while also serving to reinforce the "we do that at our school, too" crowd's experiences. 2005, HarperCollins, Ages 3 to 6.

PreS-Gr 1-The young rabbits from Bunnies on the Go (2003) and Bunny Christmas (2004, both HarperCollins) head off to Cottontail School. From walking into the classroom with Mom to packing-up time at the end of the day, these bunnies engage in many delightful and exciting activities. Rhyming verses describe show-and-tell, "learning time," music, recess, snack time, science, a field trip, art, storytime, etc. Miglio's colorful pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations capture all the action. Children will enjoy viewing the detailed illustrations and discovering the interesting places and people they will encounter during their first year of school.-Ely M.

Kirkus Reviews
Walton returns to his prolific bunny community, this time to introduce youngsters to the concept of school. Rhyming couplets perk along at a cheerful pace describing the daily rituals that encompass a school day. Readers learn about show-and-tell, the three R's, music and, of course, recess, among other activities. The text is simple; each segment addresses a particular topic, describing it and instilling a few school maxims along the way. For example, at snack time the bunnies are reminded to wash up first and throw their trash away last. It remains, then, for Miglio's terrific illustrations to tell the whole story. Although her world is populated by her cuddlesome bunnies, her physical depictions of school are firmly grounded in reality. Seasoned schoolgoers will recognize familiar facets of the classroom, while newcomers get enough information to help prepare them for their first big day. The full-color, full-bleed pictures have enough detail to satisfy the most curious of tots eager to learn about every little bit of school. Sure to help ease the transition. (Picture book. 3-6)
