Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Each book is a delight.”—Booklist, Starred

“Loaded with child appeal.”—School Library Journal

From The Critics
Perfect for the nursery school set, this sturdy board book employs two cuddly creatures to teach school-related words and concepts like "backpacks" and "story hour." Simple objects depicted in a vibrant, eye-catching palette provide an insider's look at school, helping children acquire anxiety-reducing insights. (Ages 2 to 4)
Child magazine's Best Children's Book Awards 2004
Publishers Weekly
All aboard! Concepts come at their most appealing for smallest hands. Gaspard and Lisa's Ready for School Words by Anne Gutman, illus. by Georg Hallensleben helps teach everyday words, from toothbrushes and "potty" to pivotal moments at school. Gaspard's tardiness makes him miss story hour, but he joins Lisa for milk and cookies at snack time; it's a busy day for the winsome canines. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Gaspard and Lisa are sound asleep but when the alarm goes off at 7 am it is time to get ready for school. The morning routine includes washing up, brushing hair and eating a nutritious breakfast of bread, fruit, eggs and yogurt. Then it is time to bush their teeth and use the potty. (For those who are observant, the breakfast foods and the potty let you know that this board book is a European import.) Our little friends head out for a great day that includes story hours, feeding the class pets, painting and coloring, playing musical instruments, enjoying a snack and playing outside on the slide and seesaw. What a busy day at nursery school for these two dogs. Key words are printed in bold on each page and the goal is to help preschoolers increase or build vocabularies. 2004, Random House, Ages 18 mo. to 4.
—Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-Simple sentences describe how two lovable puppies get ready for nursery school and relate the activities of a typical day, including storytime, feeding the classroom animals, outdoor play, and snack time. On each spread, several related words are presented in bold print, such as "pillow" when Gaspard wakes up, and "backpacks" when the characters head home. Cheery, vivid illustrations depict the action as well as the highlighted objects. A good choice for day-care centers and preschools.-Olga R. Kuharets, Broward County Libraries, Fort Lauderdale, FL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
