When It's the Last Day of School based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
"When It's the Last Day of School" is about an excited student who is determined to earn his teacher's last gold star sticker of the year. The boy has an active imagination as illustrated by Wakiyama. The student seems to have lacked focus on earning a gold star until his final day before summer vacation. The pictures show him making several poor choices, ones he will not allow himself to do, on his last day while trying to earn his teacher's sticker. I am still searching for a good book about the last day of school to read to my early childhood students. I have read graduation books in the past and modified the text as I saw appropriate. I do not recommend this book for my classroom library. The characters illustrated in the book lack diversity as they all look similar. The illustrations portray the student making poor choices on days except the last day of school. His focus is on being good for one day. I rather read books to my students with positive role models and classroom behavior.
