School's First Day of School

School's First Day of School

★ "Using his signature, simple style, Robinson alternates scenes of the building and its interiors with shots that show the boisterously diverse kids' first day. A unique point of view makes this school book stand out."

Horn Book, starred review

★ "Anthropomorphization of the whole building is a new and promising approach for school-shy youngsters, and it'll make the already school-positive want to give their beloved school a hug."
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

★ "Every so often, a book comes along with a premise so perfect, it's hard to believe it hasn't been done before; this is one of those books."
Publisher's Weekly, starred review

★ "With his expressive, appealingly textured acrylic paint and collage artwork, Robinson manages to give the school just enough personality to be convincingly sentient... A delightful, perspective-tweaking back-to-school picture book."
