A follow-up to "The Baby's Catalogue", this illustrated book shows children what going to school entails. From playhouse to playground, from stories to school dinners, this book attempts to calm anxieties and fire enthusiasm in pre-school children. Among the Ahlbergs' many books are "Each Peach Pear Plum", which won the Kate Greenaway Medal, and "The Baby's Catalogue" which was runner-up for the same award.
