Enrico, a young cat, who knows quite a few things is getting ready to start school. He's faced with a few challenges... I enjoyed the protrayal and choice of words for sentences throughout the book. The preschool kids enjoyed the story & illustrations during preschool storytime. Good ending.

I think this book gives kids a chance to read a book about their first day of school that they can relate to.

Aside from simple text, there are also little words in the pictures that tell the reader an action or a certain object. It is a very kid-like trait.

It has a good moral of being yourself. At the beginning, Enrico has trouble fitting in. Once he just starts being himself, things all work out in the end.

I was sad for Enrico when he didn't know how to make friends and was too shy to raise his hand in school. This is a horribly depressing book that made me feel bad for the rest of the day. But the drawings of cats in shorts were neat.
I thought this was a very cute book about making friends. I used it in the first week of teaching Kindergarten to let my students know it was OK to be nervous and that they would eventually find friends in school to play with.
Very cute story about a cat named Enrico, and his brother, Chico, and how Enrico adjust to starting school.
The message of this book for is to have confidence and be yourself in order to find real friends.
