Synopsis: Hi, new shoes. Howdy, cubbies. Hey there, crayon. Hello School!
This collection of 38 vivid poems brings the classroom to life and sets the scene for a first school experience. From the eager anticipation of the building itself: ?Wakes up early. / Just can?t wait / to see who?s coming. / Don?t be late!? to the anxious pleas of the supplies: ?Stick with me, / says Glue with a grin, / and I?ll stick with you . . . / through thick and thin,? Hello School! celebrates all things preschool. Letters, numbers, books, water fountains, carpet squares, swings, and slides all pop off the page and into a child?s imagination.
From the Hardcover edition.
Review: Preschoolers who have been brought up on Blue's Clues books and TV programs already know that everyday inanimate objects sometimes come alive with a little imagination. All kids on the verge of starting the great adventure of education will enjoy this poetic celebration of school. Author Dee Lillegard ( Wake Up House!, a perfect companion to Hello School!, also illustrated by Don Carter, and The Poombah of Badoombah) creates playful rhymes about the many small joys of a classroom: A window "shows us if it's sunny, / or if the weather's drippy-runny, / or if the clouds are acting funny." And paper: "What's he hiding? / What's he about? / He needs your hand / to draw him out." Glue, scissors, wastebaskets, tambourines, swings, numbers, easels, and the teacher's desk are similarly explored. Don Carter's 3-D pictures, made with foam board, plaster, and acrylic paints, almost jump out at the reader with their thick, appealing textures and tasty-looking colors. Preschoolers will be clamoring to go to school after reading this clever picture book. (Ages 3 to 6) --Emilie Coulter
