Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Some kids may suffer from first day jitters when heading off to kindergarten, but many have probably been in preschool, so there really is not much to worry about. In this fanciful story our protagonists thinks of some outrageous things that might happen when he reaches school—the faucet may pour out grape juice instead of water, the teacher may take a flying leap from her rocking chair, the fish tank may take over the room, and a hungry armadillo may want his macaroni necklace. What an imagination! Mother is calm as they head to school and has a nice answer for each of the ludicrous situations. Finally our young boy says all those thing probably will not happen, but there will be one silly thing at school—him. The illustrations are full of fun and Cyd Moore seems to be having as much fun as the kids in the pictures she created to go along with this fanciful tale. An amusing read for any youngster headed off to kindergarten or even preschool. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—In Glasses, text and illustrations strive to assure readers that glasses are cool and everyone loves to wear them. Each spread depicts an outdoor scene (jungle, ocean, backyard, etc.) populated by a variety of animals and includes a single, large-print sentence that is part of a rhyming couplet. The somewhat bland text strains to be humorous: "Fancy glasses for the snake./Chimp needs glasses that won't break." The cartoon illustrations are bold—almost garish—and lack artistic interest. Joy Cowley's Agapanthus Hum and the Eyeglasses (Philomel, 1999) is a better choice for children concerned about donning specs for the first time. Kindergarten addresses school anxiety. In it, a boy questions his mother about some wild first-day scenarios such as, "what if the sink in my classroom pours grape juice instead of water?" Mom's answers are calm and reassuring: "Washing your hands would be a sticky job." Cheery illustrations and amusing facial expressions add humor to the exaggerated fears. Unfortunately, never is the name "Stinky Face" mentioned in the story and readers unfamiliar with the author's other books about this character might wonder why it appears in the title. Nonetheless, the book will join Jamie Harper's Miss Mingo and the First Day of School (Candlewick, 2006) and Julie Danneberg's First Day Jitters (Charlesbridge, 2000) in addressing first-day anxieties, and school-savvy readers will appreciate the child's silliness.—Mary Hazelton, Elementary Schools in Warren & Waldoboro, ME
