Genre: Picture Books, Children’s Fiction
Series: Pigeon
Rating: 4 out 5
Recommend to Others?: Yes

 

ABOUT: When a bus driver takes a break from his route, a very unlikely volunteer springs up to take his place-a pigeon! But you’ve never met one like this before. As he pleads, wheedles, and begs his way through the book, children will love being able to answer back and decide his fate.

My Review:
My favorite one-eyed delights again! He doesn’t like it when he can’t get his way. The illustrations are cute and the writing is solid for this age group. I love how participatory Willems books are. I would definitely recommend this book to parents.

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.
