Review for First Day of School

First Day of School, Picture Book, Robin, Birds, Tree, First Day, Children's Books, Cover Love, Cute, Esther Van Den BergI received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

This cover just drew me in! It is just so gorgeous and pretty and look at all the details! And then I read the blurb and knew I would like it even more! Because this book is about a little bird’s first day of school and I can still remember vaguely those jitters, those nerves. How at first you don’t want to, but then things turn out to be quite nice and fun.

And this was just soooo adorable and cute! Meet our little Robin, it is his first day at school and naturally he is a tad apprehensive about going! But as we can see school is actually very much fun! We see our Robin meet new friends and see them have a fantastic fun-filled day with plenty of activities and breaks. We see him play. We see him eat. I didn’t have to see him go to potty. We see crafts, and so much more. I won’t tell you all he does on his very first school day. But I guess with all this fun you can guess how his feelings are when he has to leave after such a fun day. I just laughed so hard when that end of the day came along and then smiled to see him so happy he could go another day. Though, haha, I wonder how much fun he will have when playing turns to learning and studying. While I do love studying/learning new things… I remember that I quite missed those earlier years of playing and just learning by having fun. But for now I guess things are great and that makes me happy. I am sure it is also a relief for the mom.

One thing that I found weird was that during lunch it was said that all beaks made sound… but our Robin was the only one with a beak? The rest had mouths/muzzles/whatever you want to call it.

I loved seeing the variety in the animals, we have a bunny/hare, there is a little lady bug, and several others!

The art, well it was just as good as the cover was. I really love the style and how warm and fun it is!

All in all, I am happy I had the chance to read this and I would highly recommend this one. This is a great one for kids who are about to go to school!

Star rating, 4.5 stars
