Rating: 5 out of 5
Recommend to Others?: Yes


ABOUT: Why does the Pigeon have to go to school? He already knows everything! And what if he doesn’t like it? What if the teacher doesn’t like him? What if he learns TOO MUCH!?!

Ask not for whom the school bell rings; it rings for the Pigeon!


My Review:
Another well-written, well-drawn picture book about one sassy, childish pigeon by the fantastic Mo Willems. The Pigeon Has to Go to School! is the perfect story for parents and teachers to share with kids who may be nervous about their first day of school. This story acknowledges all the anxieties and insecurities that all kids experience and presents it back in accessibly fun way.
