PreS-K–There is a double meaning in the title: the first is that the classroom has a set of etiquette the pupils follow; the second is that this classroom rocks! A variety of wildlife, including a bear, a rabbit, a hedgehog, and a turtle, make up the student population led by their teacher, a fox with red eyeglasses. The youngsters understand and list the rules they follow, which include “We use our manners,” “And we look out for each other.” They each politely raise their paws before answering the teacher’s questions and look proud of their civilized behavior and how well they get along. Cheerful digitally enhanced pencil illustrations offer insight into a classroom for the very young. Practicing printing, painting, and playing hopscotch are a few of the activities they take part in. Two tiny pink worms appear in many pictures and perform antics of their own, creating a beginner’s seek-and-find game within the story.
VERDICT Preschoolers and kindergartners are the audience for this book, which will give them an idea of what school is all about, both with activities and what’s expected of them.
