From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K A little girl tiptoes into her older brother's kindergarten class. She spends time observing, drawing on the chalkboard, painting, playing with puzzles, and pilfering cookies from snack or lunch sacks in the class cubbies. Apparently she goes about all of this without being noticed by the teacher, her brother, or any other student. She isn't missed by her mother, though mom does turn up to collect her. Choppy phrases attempt to capture a preschooler's thought patterns. While perhaps accurate, the text fails to engage, enlighten, or entertain beyond a very superficial level. The illustrations support the text; however, the characters are flat and the pages have murky background color washes. The endpapers offer a bird's-eye view of the classroom and give more information than the story. Amy Schwartz's Annabelle Swift, Kindergartner (Orchard, 1991) and Joseph Slate's Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten (Dutton, 1996) are better choices for preparing young children for the school experience.

From Publishers Weekly:

A repetitive but economical text describes a preschooler's discoveries as she spies on her brother's kindergarten class. For example, the lines "Crawling crawling/ I find cubbies/ full of goody things/ inside" accompany an ink-and-watercolor illustration of the girl sneaking cookies from someone's lunch bag. The girl remains unseen, even though she can't resist getting into the middle of class activities; the class seems to have some sort of tacit agreement to pretend that she is invisible. The thrill the girl feels in sneaking around compounds her excitement as she observes how the kindergarteners spend their day. Rogers (Best Friends Sleep Over) evokes all the mystique of the "big kids' " fun world, and end papers give an aerial view of the cheerful classroom, complete with easel, sink, class calendar, a rice-table-cum-sand-box and computer. This book offers a disarming way to help preschoolers get excited about starting school. Ages 3-6. (Aug.)
