Katz, Karen. Rosie Goes to Preschool. Schwartz & Wade (Random House), 2015. $16.99. PICTURE BOOK.
Rosie guides you through her preschool experience from being dropped off by her dad to being picked up. Rosie has free time, circle time, art, music, lunch, recess, nap, and one last story book to finish the day. Rosie gives lots of helpful tips throughout the book; such as, “At play time, you can play by yourself or with a friend.” This is a good book to prepare a small child for what to expect at preschool and the promising reassurance that their parent’s will come back at the end. The illustrations are collage and mixed media and in the same unique style as other picture and board books by Karen Katz. Small children are sure to be drawn in by their bright colors and bold patterns of the illustrations.
