Timothy is very excited about starting school—until he meets Claude. Claude sits next to him, and he wears all the right clothes, says all the right things, and garners all the praise from his teacher and classmates. Timothy is feeling down, until he meets a girl who's having the same problem with her seatmate...."Children will easily relate to this tale, in which humor and realism effectively mesh." —Booklist, starred review

This is a book about Timothy who is starting school. He is all excited about going to school on the first day. When he gets there the teacher introduces him to Claude. Claude was not nice to Timothy and so Timothy began to feel discourage. When Timothy went home that day and his mom asked how school was Timothy told her that no wears a sun suit on the first day. His mom made him new clothes and after a while he met Violet. They both played together and became good friends. This is a good first day read-aloud for children in kindergarten.

This book is about a little racoon named Timothy who goes to school everyday and is made fun of my a classmate about what he is wearing. Everyday, Timothy goes home and asks his mom if he can wear something different. One day, Timothy overhears someone say that she too, is fed up with a someone who bullies her. From that day on they become the best of friends and realize that there will always be bullies, but there will also be someone who understands being bullied.

I would read the book, "Timothy Goes To School" to kindergarten or first graders. The book begins with a little boy Timothy going to school and he was so excited because his mom had made him a new outfit. When Timothy got to school another little boy told him you do not wear that to school on the first day. So Timothy went home crying to his mommy that no one at school like his new outfit. This went on for the first three days of school. On that Friday Timothy met a new friend who loved what he wore so they became best friends. I think that this book teaches students a very important lesson. First we should not judge others on what they look like or wear. Next when someone is making fun of you for what you are wearing just move on and find another friend. I really enjoyed reading this book and think it would be a great book for a teacher's library.

This book is about Timothy who gets made fun of by Claude at school. Somehow Timothy never wears the "right" thing to school which Claude always points out. Claude was also really talented and smart and it made Timothy feel unaccepted. Eventually, Timothy realizes that there is another person in the class that is in the same situation as him. Violet had a friend at school who was also very talented and seem smarter then her. Timothy and Violet became good friends after they found out what they had in common.
