With the same gusto that fueled [cf2]I Love Trucks![cf1] and the rest of their collaborations, Sturges and Halpern craft a rousing endorsement of kindergarten from a child's perspective. The flat, heavily outlined, brightly colored illustrations exude good cheer as a brother and sister take turns telling (in rhyme) what they like to do in the classroom and on the playground.

PreS-K-From the bus ride through a typical kindergarten day, Sturges's simple and serviceable rhymes describe the world children will discover when they begin school. Classroom activities include playtime, art, writing numbers and letters, recess, lunch, and storyhour. The book culminates with the highlight, "And what I like the most-/You guessed-/Is our teacher-/She's the best!" Halpern's diverse and appealing students are simply rendered in bright and clear colors. A good choice for family sharing as well as for every kindergarten teacher's first-day-of-school bag of tricks, this story will also appeal to those designing orientation programs.-Phyllis M.
