Reviews

Recipient of 7 starred reviews!"Robinson (Last Stop on Market Street) gives the school just a hint of visual personification in his flattened, paint-and-collage artwork, as Rex (Moonday) deftly juggles well-placed jokes and keen insights into feeling comfortable in one's own skin--or bricks, as the case may be."--Publishers Weekly, starred "Using his signature, simple style, Robinson alternates scenes of the building and its interiors with shots that show the boisterously diverse kids' first day.A unique point of view makes this school book stand out."--Kirkus Reviews, starred "Sure to become a staple for first days of school everywhere."--Horn Book, starred "This charming reversal of first-day-of-school nerves will delight little ones
