Children's LiteratureEvery 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.
