School Library Journal - 08/01/2016 PreS-K—This cumulative verse describes the joyful activities of the first few days of kindergarten. Only the first two verses rhyme and most, but not all, contain alliteration. Still, the lines scan well and beg to be sung to the tune of "The Twelve Days of Christmas." For example, "On the third day of kindergarten/I thought it was so cool/counting up to ten, making lots of friends,/and riding the bus to my school!" The ink, paint, and collage digital illustrations have the hectic feel of a kindergarten class and feature a diverse group of students. VERDICT A general purchase for libraries looking to add to their first day of school collections, this one makes a good read/sing aloud.—Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GA - Copyright 2016 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
