Overall: 4 out of 5 stars

I had very high hopes for this, mostly based on the title (cute concept – first day of school from a school’s point of view). It was cute, but didn’t blow me away. I might have liked it better if it had been a school that had been around longer and knew what to expect on the first day, a bit more didactic. Although, upon reflection, having the school be brand new to the concept of school made it more relatable to a young reader going off to Kindergarten. One of the most relatable parts was when the school accidentally has a fire drill (like accidentally wetting your pants) – this was done in a very cute way. Overall pretty good! Some of the illustrations really personified the school, which was delightful, and they were nice and simple with a good text layout. I’m always glad to have more good first-day-of-school books!
