Overview

The first day of school is both scary and exciting for Otto. At first, he is very nervous, but then he realizes how much fun school can be. Otto learns all kinds of things - how to share his toys, how to play games, and even how to remember that shoes are for wearing, not for eating. (Silly Otto!)

Todd Parr's bold illustrations and simple text are the perfect fit for children just starting their reading journey. At the end of the story, Todd offers a reassuring message to cure those back-to-school jitters: "The first day of school is fun and exciting. You will meet new friends, learn new things, and then you will be really, really smart! Love, Otto and Todd."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Todd Parr offers a pair of school-related titles. His multi-colored canine goes to the head of the class in the paper-over-board Otto Goes to School. The hero learns not to pull cats' tails and not to chase squirrels. But even the best students make mistakes (Otto tracks in mud), proving there is always more to learn.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Otto is back in his next big adventure-heading to school. Starting with his favorite breakfast, "cereal, juice, and a banana split," the pup faces a child's typical first-day worries but has a good time when he settles in. His lessons include learning to wag his tail without knocking things over; finding out that shoes are for wearing and not chewing; and sharing toys and games-all capped with the refrain of "Good dog, Otto!" Parr uses his trademark bold primary colors, blocky simple characters, and heavy black line to illustrate this tale. He keeps the focus on the fun while sharing insights on this new experience.-Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha's Public Library, WI Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
