Synopses & Reviews
"The trio of siblings from Picture My Day, Picture My World, and A Day at the Farm return to share their school days with readers. Cordier and Lacroix casually guide readers through the day, with brief phrases and bits of dialogue making up the narrative. 'Big kids go to school and little kids go to daycare,' the book reads as the mother hands her nervous-looking youngest to a friendly employee, while a page filled with toys appears opposite. The older siblings can be seen making friends, playing, learning, and spending time with the babysitter after school. An accessible introduction to various aspects of school that leaves room for family conversations on each page. Ages 2 4." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
