School Library Journal - 03/01/2013 PreS-K—A nameless little girl likes everything kindergarten so her transition toward independence has been easy for her, but not for her mother, whom she invites to join her for a day in class. Her mother is excited about the opportunity but her actions are more than a bit embarrassing when she doesn't wait her turn in line or take off her outside shoes. Her daughter gives her gentle reminders to follow the expected behaviors but Mom keeps having outbursts and shows a lack of self-control. Dismayed by her behavior, the child consults her teacher and is reminded that it takes a while to get used to something new. The girl is pleased when her mom displays more appropriate behavior and learns the rules that every kindergartener knows. At the end of the day, the woman decides to stick to things she is good at and leave the kindergarten activities to her daughter. Lowery's cartoon art is simple and expressive, accurately displaying activities of a kindergarten classroom. This is a fresh and funny look at a familiar subject that both children and parents will enjoy.—Diane Antezzo, Ridgefield Library, CT - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
