This is a fun little book about a bird’s first day of school. The illustrations were cute and the book kept my child’s interest throughout- he especially liked the rabbit in the restroom!

An adorably illustrated book for preschoolers hesitant to start school. The story follows Robin's first day at school and all the activities preschoolers can anticipate during their day from circle time, playing with toys, meal times, and going potty. The story concludes with Robin's mom returning at the end of the school day to pick him up and leaving him excited to return to school the next day.

Such a sweet story that my own child starting preschool this year enjoyed! I would recommend this book for preschool aged children. 

Thank you to NetGalley for a digital ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I adore Esther Van den Berg's illustration style and the message in this book is so sweet as Robin navigates his very first day of school

This book was a cute, sweet look at a first day at school for a young bird. It was easy to read and will be engaging for young readers who are nervous about going to school for the first time, since it gives them a good idea of what their day will be like and shows that their parents will come back for them at the end of the day. 

The art style was cute and fitting for the story. While I think this will be a comfort for young readers, it doesn't quite encapsulate the feelings of the first day of school, but rather a typical day at school. The characters talk to each other as if it's just been a weekend away instead of a summer. I believe this is a translated book, though, so I'm not sure how the school system works in the author's country and how that would affect a first day of school for them. 

Overall, it was a nice read.

This was a really cute first day of school book. And the illustrations are beautiful, very vibrant colors. I would recommend this for a parent who needs a good book to teach about the first day of school. Thanks to NetGalley for letting me read it ahead of time.

First Day Of School is a wonderful book about a young Robin's experience going to school. The book goes through all of the different activities, from circle time, to playing, to snack, to potty, etc. The illustrations are beautiful and whimsical and the content will put children at ease if they are hesitant to start school. This would be perfect for a child starting preschool or kindergarten! 

Thank you Clavis Publishing and NetGalley for providing this ARC.
