ABC School's for Me! by Susan B. Katz -- ADVISABLE

Katz, Susan B. ABC School's for Me!, illustrated by Lynn Munsinger. PICTURE BOOK. Scholastic Press, 2015. $16.99. Content: G.

This alphabet book points out all the fun things children get to do in school. Although there are many books in a similar vein, this is a particularly nice example and would work well with either preschool or kindergarten students, in a school or public library. The rhyming and rhythm work well, making it fun to read aloud, and the colorful, detailed illustrations are completely adorable. While some examples such as Friends who share a hello hug are cozy and sweet, others such as Visit to the potty (together with a tasteful illustration) will likely elicit delightfully scandalized giggles from children.
