Arthur's little sister, D.W., tells what's what at preschool in this laugh-out-loud guide from Marc Brown.
From free play to lunchtime to recess, D.W. lets kids know that preschool is all about meeting people and having lots of fun, with a little chaos thrown in. Although "some kids are sad" when parents drop them off, the sassy and self-assured D.W. assures readers that "I'm not.… It's no big deal." As for those necessary bathroom breaks, she points out that "Once, Dennis wet his pants. I pretended not to notice because we're learning to be polite." And later, when the class learns "The Wheels on the Bus," D.W. doesn't "know why, because we can't take the bus until next year, when we're in kindergarten." All the cool things about preschool don't just end at the end of the day, though, because as D.W. points out, "I'm not sad, because I get to come back tomorrow!"
With Marc Brown's recognizably snappy artwork to add to the preschool fun, D.W.'s guide should put those preschool fears at ease. The little aardvark's confidence and chipper demeanor sets a great example, and the playfulness of the other preschoolers will keep kids giggling. There's no school to fear when D.W. is here!
