"An outstandingly clear and reassuring entry into the crowded field of getting-ready-for-preschool books." —Booklist
Who better to offer advice to children facing the first day of preschool than the hugely popular, bestselling Karen Katz? It’s the first day of preschool, and the narrator, Rosie, knows everything a new preschooler needs to know. Rosie introduces the reader to her cubby, her teacher, her reading circle, her music class, her lunch table, and more.
With gentle, reassuring language and Katz’s signature bold, bright, and sweet artwork, Rosie Goes to Preschool will surely be a hit among the legions of children who have grown up reading Katz’s books. Now that these big boys and girls are ready to take their first big steps into school, Karen Katz is here to help.
Wearing a welcoming smile and a bright pink dress dotted with daisies, a girl named Rosie tells readers what to expect at preschool in this reassuring outing featuring Katz's characteristically round-headed, rosy-cheeked toddlers. Rosie calmly breezes through the day's activities, like singing songs and listening to stories during circle time, or playing with clay when it's time for art. Throughout, small circular bursts offer "Rosie Tips" for preschool success ("Don't forget to raise your hand if you want to talk"). Cozy, inviting graphics and a narrative that's never anything less than confident combine to create a gentle resource for relieving preschool butterflies. Ages 2 5.
