FAMILY & EDUCATION
Check out this fun role-reversal picture
book that will help reluctant students see
the appeal of school!
It's just another school morning … until
Mom, Dad, Grandma, and even Bow-wow the
dog beg the kids to let them come to school,
too! Dad can tie his own shoes — why can't he
come? Mom is all ready with her brand-new
backpack — she's allowed, right? No! Only
kids and teachers!
Christina Geist's warm, interactive story is
the perfect tool for parents of kids who are
reluctant or nervous about going to school.
The fun refrain — "Sorry, grown-ups! You
can't go to school! Only kids and teachers!
Only kids and teachers!" — brilliantly paints
school as something exclusive and desirable
… which kids can access!
Tim Bowers's lively illustrations enhance the
fun and heighten the hilarity. This is sure to
be a back-to-school classic in many families
