School Library Journal
Panda worries that his mother will not be able to survive the day without his help, but she assures him that she will be all right as she shepherds him through his morning routine and walks him to school. His teacher, a bespectacled kangaroo, knows how to soothe a homesick child. When Panda finds a note from his mother and a photograph in his lunch box, he realizes she is with him, after all. The gentle, comforting feeling of the text is reinforced with pictures of the old-fashioned wood stove and home-baked bread in Panda's kitchen and the traditional blackboard in the classroom of the red brick schoolhouse. The large black print and uncluttered design make the book appropriate for easy-reader or picture-book collections.
