Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Young Baabaara, a lamb, has trouble adjusting to her first day at Tinyflock Nursery School in this title by Suzy-Jane Tanner. Another lamb inadvertently knocks her down, she has an "accident" in her underpants and her yogurt spills, inspiring the refrain, "I want to go home!" But things do improve as the day progresses. Her sheep classmates look cute and energetic. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Baabaara is quite timid on the first day of nursery school. She bleats when her mother leaves, but soon gets caught up in the story Ms. Wooley is reading. Things continue to go wrong, but there always seems to be someone there to make the situation better. For example, when Warren pretended he was a spaceship he accidentally ran into Baabaara and knocked her over. But then, "He took her hoof and together they zoomed off to Mars." She wets her pants, her yogurt spills all over everything in her lunch box, and when they went outside Baabaara didn't have a friend to play with. Each of these problems gets resolved through the kindness of her classmates, and when it is time to go home, she wants to stay. Friendly, anthropomorphic lambs populate this nursery school. They have expressive faces and boundless energy and cute little outfits. Preschoolers will identify with Baabaara's feelings. This will be a useful book for "timid little lambs" going off to nursery school for the first time. 2004, HarperFestival, Ages 3 to 5.
—Sharon Salluzzo
School Library Journal
PreS-K-It's her first day at Tinyflock Nursery School, and Baabaara is not too sure about anything except that she wants to go home. When it's time for her mother to leave, the distraught lamb begins to bleat. Fortunately, Ms. Wooley distracts her with a story, and soon Baabaara is so busy listening that she forgets to cry. She participates in a lesson on shapes and colors and enjoys outdoor play and games, but during music and movement she is accidentally knocked over, and at lunch she spills her yogurt. Even worse, during the art lesson she is so involved that she forgets to go to the bathroom. These first-day disasters are mitigated by friendly preschoolers and by a teacher who comes to the rescue with spare underpants. Despite the dramas and traumas, at the end of the day, she bleats, "But it's fun here.- I don't want to go home!" The charming artwork aptly illustrates this glimpse into a classroom of active, expressive preschoolers. Although this predictable entry adds little to the subject, its comforting simplicity and gentle, straightforward telling will reassure children who have their own concerns about starting school. Julie Danneberg's First Day Jitters (Charlesbridge, 2000), Kevin Henkes's Wemberly Worried (Greenwillow, 2000), and Jonathan London's Froggy Goes to School (Viking, 1996) are more fun, yet this is a competent title on a universal theme.-Piper L. Nyman, Fairfield/Suisun Community Library, Fairfield, CA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
