Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Legge's (Bamboozled) fun-filled watercolors are as infectious as Australian author Wild's lively tale of a young panda's first day of school. Tom's parents are always too busy working to play monsters or astronauts with him. But on the first day of kindergarten, when Tom won't let go of his parents' legs and his teacher invites his parents and Baby to stay and play, they join right in. They listen to a story, play dress up, paint pictures and build castles in the sandbox. By day two, Tom is ready to be independent, but his parents want to stay. As Tom's mother reluctantly goes home to wash the windows and weed the garden, and his father heads to the office to "sign a lot of papers," even Tom feels sorry for them. Illustrations of the papa panda wearing a newspaper hat and a fish tie while dancing a sailor's hornpipe in his office will tickle youngsters' funny bones, as will Legge's inspired portrayal of the grown panda bears enthusiastically singing "I'm a little teapot short and stout." This humorous story about adults rediscovering the satisfaction of creative play will likely allay any anxieties children may have about starting kindergarten. Ages 4-6. (Apr.)

Tom, the oldest son of the panda family was almost ready for kindergarten. As he waited for school to start, Tom and his family did chores and played make-believe games. On the day kindergarten was to begin, the panda family all went to school. But when it was time for Tom's mother and father to leave, Tom was frightened. The teacher, Mrs. Polar Bear, invited them to stay with Tom. Everyone loved kindergarten. The next day, as all the family prepared to stay at school with Tom, he kissed them goodbye. Tom's mother and father went to work, but could hardly wait to find out how Tom enjoyed his second day of kindergarten. This is a wonderful story of a mother and father that share household chores, enjoy doing routine tasks and have fun as a family. 2000, Albert Whitman, Ages 4 to 6, $15.95. Reviewer: Karen Werner
From The Critics
Tom is a little Panda bear who is excited about starting kindergarten. When the great day arrives, his mother and father and baby sister walk him to the school. But when he's finally there Tom wants his family to stay and they do! The result is a wonderful day at school for everyone. Margaret Wild's endearing, funny children's story is vibrantly, vividly, perfectly executed watercolor artwork. Highly recommended.

    library fave--had to get our own copy!

    I have twins going into kindergarten this year and this book has been a hilarious way to lighten up the whole situation. Wonderful illustrations and a really clever story make this a lifetime keeper!

    A very sweet story about starting school

    This is a wonderfully illustrated story about a little pandabear's first day of kidergarten and how much fun it is for the whole family. It is a good transition story for a parent to read to their child when anticipating the first day of school. The story works well substuting the word 'preschool' for the word 'kindergarten' for younger children.
