School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- The first day of kindergarten is imminent, and Archie is annoyed by the preparations (shopping for clothes, shoes, and school supplies and visiting the dentist, doctor, and barber) since he has no intention of going to school. The boy's fears are recognizable ones. McCue's realistic pen-and-watercolor illustrations feature him and his immediate surroundings. The large pictures help viewers focus their attention and make this book a good choice to share with groups. Archie is reminiscent of Viorst's main character in Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (Atheneum, 1972). Although the two books have different themes, the determined children and string of events make them good companion readers. Cohen's Will I Have a Friend? (Macmillan, 1967) shares the same theme. Archie is more independent than Cohen's protagonist, but both boys are realistic, and their stories are reassuring. --Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
