We Love Our School by Judy Sierra

This is a picture book about the first day of school done in a read together Rebus form; words plus pictures to make it easier to learn to read.

Alfred A Knopf Children's Books sent me a copy of this picture book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can get a copy of it at your local bookstore.

This is a very colorful picture book with cute, vibrant animals from Linda Davick.  They are whimsical and fun to look at, and will add to the joy of reading the story.

The text rhymes, which is a nice touch.  This is the story of the first day of school done in simple words with pictures in the sentences that replace the actual word.  

The pink sheep is my favorite character. It looks like she's wearing little balloons on her head and she's hot pink!

If your child is having a bit of time learning to read, this is a good book for them.  Learning to recognize the words in the form of an illustration will make it easier for them to see the words in writing, too.

Happy reading.
