PreSchool-K–It's her first day at Tinyflock Nursery School, and Baabaara is not too sure about anything except that she wants to go home. When it's time for her mother to leave, the distraught lamb begins to bleat. Fortunately, Ms. Wooley distracts her with a story, and soon Baabaara is so busy listening that she forgets to cry. She participates in a lesson on shapes and colors and enjoys outdoor play and games, but during music and movement she is accidentally knocked over, and at lunch she spills her yogurt. Even worse, during the art lesson she is so involved that she forgets to go to the bathroom. These first-day disasters are mitigated by friendly preschoolers and by a teacher who comes to the rescue with spare underpants. Despite the dramas and traumas, at the end of the day, she bleats, "But it's fun here.... I don't want to go home!" The charming artwork aptly illustrates this glimpse into a classroom of active, expressive preschoolers. Although this predictable entry adds little to the subject, its comforting simplicity and gentle, straightforward telling will reassure children who have their own concerns about starting school. Julie Danneberg's First Day Jitters (Charlesbridge, 2000), Kevin Henkes's Wemberly Worried (Greenwillow, 2000), and Jonathan London's Froggy Goes to School (Viking, 1996) are more fun, yet this is a competent title on a universal theme.–Piper L.
