Summary


Your pet buffalo is growing up. He plays with friends. He shares his toys. He's smart! But is he ready for kindergarten (And is kindergarten ready for him)



From author Audrey Vernick and illustrator Daniel Jennewein comes this hilarious and heartwarming look at first-day-of-school jitters. With vibrant graphic art and a quirky voice that hits the sweet spot of both funny and poignant, Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten is sure to appeal to kids and parents alike.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gearing up for the first day of kindergarten can be a stressful affair, but the base-level implausibility of this book should add some laughs while reassuring children that they are, in fact, ready for the big leap into school. By transferring the subject from a child to your buffalo, the book dodges preachiness as it lays out some nice lessons about what to expect. Chalky drawings of a big cartoony buffalo show that although he may be the only kid in class with a mane, horns, and a hump, there's all sorts of things that make him unique and special. Just the thing to calm those night-before nerves. Ed: OK in Older Readers?--Chipman, Ian Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: ""Some people say kindergarten is no place for a buffalo. How crazy is that?" So begins this humorous story about standing out in order to fit in. A buffalo doesn't look, eat, or act like anyone else, but it's his differences that make him so lovable ("who can resist that furry face?"). This story's simple lesson about individuality is cleverly expressed through Vernick's gentle wit and Jennewein's crayon-outlined kindergartners-most of all, the furry and ungainly reader surrogate with whom kids will readily relate, even if "he may the only one who eats grass, then throws it up in his mouth and eats it again. Remember: Everyone's special in his or her own way." Ages 4-8. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
