First Grade, Here I Come!













First Grade, Here I Come!

by D.J. Steinberg, illustrated by Tracy Bishop
Grosset & Dunlap, 2016

A collection of light and fun story rhymes about what happens in the first grade.  From the first-day excitement of backpacks, desks and books, to visiting the library, to a great mishap on a field trip—that made it the greatest adventure ever!  It also includes the very important experience of finding, losing and re-earning a BFF.  Fun-time stories clear to the last day of school.  The lightness and simplicity of the rhymes, stories and illustrations makes this a wonderful invitation to entering the first grade.   I don’t usually review age-specific picture books, but I happened to pick this one up and found it fun.  The author’s first book was targeted for starting kindergarten, worth looking at if you’ve got a young one starting school.
