My Preschool

Overview

Join a happy little boy during a day at preschool, from cheerful hellos in circle time, to painting colorful pictures and playing at the water table before snack time. The best part of saying good-bye at the end of the day is that the little boy knows he will come back tomorrow.

In her signature style, Anne Rockwell captures a child’s preschool day (the bumps and the thrills!) with warmth and reassurance.

Julie Just
With refreshing realism, this colorful picture book takes a child's-eye view of going to preschool for the first time…The art, in handprinted monoprint, is bold, striking and handsome, while being suggestive of a child's carefree style.
—The New York Times
School Library Journal

PreS-K- Using colorful inks and traditional Japanese woodblock printing, Rockwell follows a boy through his day as he enjoys all the activities associated with preschool. From playtime to music, snack, art, and even yoga, the colorful monoprints convey the youngster's emotions as he experiences each activity and interacts with his classmates. This book may be shared individually or with a group; the detail and realistic depiction of the preschool experience will help to calm some newcomers' trepidations about attending school for the first time.-G. Alyssa Parkinson, Highland Township Library, MI

Kirkus Reviews
An ebullient little boy describes his day, expertly guiding readers through all aspects of preschool life. The chatty text carefully includes the more challenging moments, such as children crying for their moms and scuffles over toys, as well as the happier events: circle-time sharing, sand-table play, a visit from the music teacher and the always-popular snack time. In a wry reflection of modern life, the now de rigueur yoga session for preschoolers takes its place in the schedule. The hand-printed illustrations are filled with intriguing textures and vivid colors, the soft edges of the images adding to the overall coziness of the day. Here Rockwell does what she does best-demystifying a common childhood experience and placing it in terms that are comforting and inspiring for young children. Readers who are reluctant about this milestone as well as those who are eagerly anticipating it will find a welcome resource in this brightly illustrated tale. (Picture book. 2-5)
