          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.
