School's First Day of School
If you've ever felt sorry for schools when their halls are quiet and bereft of all their students, this book is up your alley! The story follows the construction of a brand new school, and by extension, the school's dawning understanding of who and what it is for. Just like kids fresh off the bus and learning the ropes, the school feels hurt and sad and lonely -- and happy, too, thank goodness! -- as it observes the various things that happen inside its walls.
A beautiful tribute by Adam Rex to the important buildings in which our lives unfold, masterfully illustrated by the one and only Christian Robinson.
