Language Notes:

Text: English, Swedish

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K This Swedish import address es the dream of many preschoolersto be able to attend school with the ``big kids.'' Five-year-old Lena wishes she could do more than just play school. One morning, seven-year-old brother Peter makes her wish come true when he in vites her to join his class for a day. At school, she is warmly welcomed by ev eryone except birthday boy Pelle, who is antagonistic. By the end of the day, Lena is satisfied, having experienced real school including science, math, reading, and of course, recess. Despite the appealing subject, this picture book fails to make the grade. The idea that Lena would be allowed to attend school without adult permission is unbeliev able. The story is too long for a pre school audience. A plodding pedestrian text suggests that Peter and Lena could well be named Dick and Jane. Finally, although the large bright illustrations have child-appeal, they are cluttered, lack perspective, and portray a group of children with nearly identical facial fea tures. No one will suffer if this title is absent from the collection. Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, Wis.
