My First School Journal

About the Book
The very first year of school is an exciting milestone in a child’s life. Here, brand new students can chronicle their early school adventures with the help of Richard Scarry’s beloved characters. Huckle Cat, Hilda Hippo and Lowly Worm spell, count, play and sing throughout these colorful pages to encourage little ones to record how they felt, who they met and what they learned during those first few days and beyond. Children will draw, write, paste and get creative with more than 60 included stickers. A big storage pocket at the end of the book holds special mementos to help commemorate the time. A super fun project for kids that will become a cherished family keepsake down the road. (Ages 3–6)

About The Author
Richard Scarry, the renowned author and illustrator of many beloved children’s books, was best known for his series about Busytown, where animals who act very much like people engage in all sorts of work activities. Many of Busytown’s favorite characters also appear in My First School Journal and My School Backpack, which teaches basic learning concepts to preschoolers. This book is also available in North America from Barron's.

My Take on the Book
This was a great book for any child starting school for the first time. This collects great information from the child itself and collects it for the future. Best of all was that the book was set with the Busy Town characters which is the ultimate favorite characters of my youngest daughter. So not only are my wife and I getting some great information to recollect this special time in our youngest daughters' life (when she goes into Kindergarten this fall). The book was high color and very interactive and allowed the child to be able to truly make it their own and even share other special papers or other information within its' pages as well. Well written and a definitely keepsake once complete.
