From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- Boris knows--absolutely--that he will not like school. Neither encouragement from friends nor the purchase of new supplies makes the situation any easier for him to accept. Once there, though, Boris comforts a new-found friend (a desolate, weeping crocodile) and realizes that he is not alone in his apprehension of all the newness. His teacher has a full day planned for her students, and Boris joins in all the activities with gleeful abandon. His innovative help with the clean-up detail prompts Miss Prism's wise response. . . "I don't know how I managed without you." Happy and proud, Boris is delighted to show his family what he has "learned" in school that day. The pastel watercolor illustrations in this insightful little book depict the personified animals with charm and exuberance. Cartoonlike in style, they are full of emotion and action, lending well-placed, visual interest to the smooth storyline. From the entertaining endpapers to its satisfying finish, this empathetic book is certain to reassure those who are experiencing the first-time-to-school jitters. --Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School,
