I Want to Go to School Too: Astrid Lindgren

This Scandinavian import by the author of the Pippi Longstocking books depicts a lively day at grammar school. Five-year-old Lena is eager to go to school like her seven-year-old brother Peter. So one day, Peter obliges. Lena is honored when allowed to sit at her own desk, join the children for lunch and go to recess with them. The busy, cheerful illustrations fill in the details of Peter's school with satisfying completeness. Although Peter's school is different from an American school in its specifics, its uniqueness gives it personality and substance. The book provides a comforting answer to young children's questions about starting school. Ages 3-up. (October)
