I think that although children nowadays have more of an idea about 'big' school, because they do visits etc but they still like to have a book to read with an adult and look at the pictures. I think it helped give my granddaughter some extra confidence when talking about it before the big day.
I think the illustrations are charmingly old fashioned. My granddaughter found them very easy to understand and relate to. I'd recommend reading one day (chapter) per evening as there's quite a lot to see and discuss.
His Mum & Nan have both said what a wonderful book & that it has been read every night. The little boy now knows the book word for word & isn’t bored of it! I will defo purchase this book again for future school starters 😊
What a lovely book. Absolutely a joy to read before bed to my little one. She's actually started requesting it before bed now.
