3.0 out of 5 stars Amicable but forgettable kid's book, 12 Nov 2013
This review is from: Boris Starts School (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got this as my 4 year old was about to start school, so I thought this would be a good way of exploring the experience of starting school for the first the with her. However, the story focuses more on how the new kid is an outsider because he's different from his classmates, until the time when he comes to save them from bullies. In this sense, its message is more about accepting diversity in individuals (which is great and important) and less about starting school (which is what I was after). It's still a good storybook and well illustrated, and could be used as a jumping off point to discuss difference with your kids - but in terms of a normal experience of starting school I think it's less useful.
