School daze for Babar!
Being the king of the elephants is hard work. But Babar's children say it's even harder to be a student. So Babar heads back to school-with hilarious results. His pencil breaks, he gets in trouble for talking in class, he sits on a wad of gum...what a day! Poor Babar is more than ready for his snack and a nap. "I think I'll go back to being a grown-up tomorrow," he tells Celeste. "It's a much easier job!"

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Fans present and past will be pleased to see another story about their beloved Babar. In this simple tale, the elephant spends the day at school with his children, Pom, Flor, and Alexander. The ageless Old Lady enters the scene as the kind but strict schoolteacher. After a busy day of writing, math, science, and noisy bus rides, Babar is exhausted. He realizes that being a child is more tiring than he remembered. The bright, clear illustrations are adapted to look like the original artwork of Jean and Laurent de Brunhoff. A pleasant, familiar visit with a lovable old friend. -Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL
