Summary
This picture book about the first day of school, featuring a frog, a duck, a mouse, and a snail, combines a story in rhyme with colorful graphic rebuses, making it a fun book for parent and child to share in the reading. Children about to enter kindergarten or first grade who long to be able to read will get a sense of accomplishment by "reading" the little rebus pictures in the story. Judy Sierra, author of Wild About Books , uses bouncy rhyme and rhythm as cues for the child to name the pictogram rebuses. Preschoolers will enjoy following the animals and their teacher, Tom Burkey (who is a turkey), through a happy first day of school.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Using rhyming text filled with rebus pictures, Sierra presents a group of animals attending their first day of school. Frog, Duck, Mouse, and Snail are met by teache. Tom Burkey, / A very nice turkey. who introduces them to the ABCs and blocks; later, they enjoy art (taught by Mrs. Bunny), lunch, counting, and music before departing for the day. The text is reminiscent of the meter and style of Joseph Slate's Miss Bindergarten series. The polka-dot snail / Brought her lunch in a pail. / The duck had some soup in a cup. . Davick's vibrant artwork features strong geometric shapes painted in candy-colored hues. The overall effect is one of lightness, well suited to the upbeat text. The rebus pictures should be obvious to young listeners, who will be able to hel. rea. the story; only one (a rabbit? bunny?) is unclear, but its placement in the middle of the line makes either answer appropriate. Rebus fans will also like those of Shirley Neitzel (Our Class Took a Trip to the Zoo, 2002).--Weisman, Ka. Copyright 2010 Booklist"
