Product Description

Review

Great fun and ideal for reading aloud.

(Bath Chronicle)

What a lovely book for a child just starting play group.

(www.writeaway.org.uk)

A lovely insight into a child's world, with simple text and gentle illustrations.

(Junior)

Uses detailed illustrations, but very few words, to show just what this strange new place will be like - walking in, having your own peg, playing games both indoors and outside,painting, storytime, drinking juice together and getting ready to go home. There's even a class pet!

To be fair, I'm a huge fan of the Sarah Garland books in the "Going to.." series with the slightly dishevelled mother, dog, pre-schooler and toddler in their less than perfect house. There is very little text, but plenty to talk about in the pictures (so the story can last for as long as you fancy). I bought it in anticipation of sending my daughter to nursery just after her second birthday and for about a month I tried to manoeuvre it to the top of the book pile so that I could explain what fun nursery would be (the pages include all sorts of typical nursery activities). I can't help thinking that it made settling in a lot easier. A year later, the book normally stays firmly on the bookshelf but once in a while it is fun to get my 3 year old daughter to tell me the story from her perspective.

We bought this at the suggestion of a friend to help introduce the idea of pre school to our two year old. He really enjoyed the story, the pictures and beautifully detailed and there is lots to talk about. The story is very nice too and we found that, although it was not exactly how our pre school is, the pictures are detailed enough for you to frame any routine around it. A really lovely book.

Nice little book however the illustrations were a little outdated and when I checked it was an 80's publication. However the story went down well.

Helps children to overcome the fear of playschool by seeing that it is good. Its use of concepts also makes this a good teaching aid for children
