Cover: It's Back to School We Go!: First Day Stories From Around the World

“For each of the 11 countries – Kenya, Japan, China, Peru, Canada, Kazakhstan, Australia, Germany, Russia, India, and the U.S. – there’s a short paragraph written in the child’s excited voice, accompanied by a page of facts about kids and school, including what the children eat and wear, the subjects they study, and the games and sports they play. A world map shows the countries, and lively, colorful illustrations in folk-art style combine the particulars of each child’s culture with the universals of leaving home and finding a place in the classroom. Jackson makes it clear that one child doesn’t represent everyone in a country, and kids will enjoy the quick snapshots and the connections.” —Booklist
