K-Gr. 2. This touching Ready-to-Read story explores how things change when a child leaves home to start school. Michael is excited about starting first grade, but it is only when he gets to the classroom that he realizes that Cookie, his beloved puppy and constant companion, can't stay with him. The kind teacher says that Cookie can come to school, live on the playground, and belong to everyone at school. But Michael realizes that he would rather have Cookie waiting for him when he gets home. The clear, simple words and exuberant line-and-watercolor pictures show the physical bond between the child and his pet, always together, even in the bath. Kids starting school will recognize the truth about how big the change will be--how hard it is to let go of old routines as well as the joy of returning home to a loving welcome. Pair this with Andrew Clement's Slippers at School (above) for another sweet story about pet pals. Hazel Rochman
