    Comments about Starting School:

    It is absolutely wonderful to finally have a well written book about Australian children starting school! The story is fabulous and the illustrations are just wonderful - so detailed and precisely child-like.
    I have used this in my classroom as well as with my own children and it has been the start of many great discussions. It's a regular for us now and will play a major part in my orientation sessions from now on.

            Comments about Starting School:

            This is a lovely book, beautifully illustrated, about a group of children starting school. It's Australian so it is very relevant. It goes through all this different and new experiences young children will encounter at school. My 4 year old loves it, especially when we change the name of one of the characters to hers.
