The last day of school, every child is filled with excitement for the beginning of summer. There is a little sadness at leaving all their friends and teacher, but that is covered up by the months of freedom. This book shows this excitement for summer. Students relate to all children look forward to. Such a good read!

Of course many kids would love this book, but I wouldn't put it out until there are a few weeks left of school! It talks about the last day of school and the excitement of summer! Kids could get very discouraged if this book was put out in the winter! This could spark converstaion about what each student is doing over summer break!

This would be a great book to read on the last day of school. It is a humorous story about a boy and his quest to receive the last golden sticker of the year but he finds many bumps along the way. He can barely contain his excitement about summer break and this proves to be a problem. Students will be able to relate to this excitement and will enjoy this read as well as the illustrations.

James is super excited for the last day of school and he is going to be on his best manners, earn a sticker, clean his desk, pay attention, hug his teacher, and eventually explode! The retro-like illustrations represent school in a boring manner; but overall a decent fun book.

I feel this book can really start a discussion about the students and their summer plans! I would wait until the last day to read this. Even j can relate to this story, every year in grade school I was so excited for the last day of the year! It was like Christmas in May!

This book is great and would be a good book to end the school year. The only thing I would add on after reading this book is to be sure to explain to the class that it is important to have good behavior all year, not just on the last day of school.

This book is a perfect representation of the way young kids think and talk. He is jumping from one subject to the next, ideas are everywhere, and very excited about everything. Very imaginative and funny too. I found this enjoyable but hard to read aloud and totally follow but that's more me.

The child in the book goes through a whole list of things that he will do on the last day of school. He is so excited! This book is great for reading towards the last week of school. It's a good way to keep the children excited and learning. I would read this to 1-3 grade.

This book would be a great end of the year read aloud to the class. The boy is so excited about summer and does a great job working with inferences. The book does a good job with the pictures and lets the readers visual what he wants to do over the summer.

Cute children's book with fun and accurate details about a topic not often written about in books.

Not necessarily relevant to preschool (as the "common" school routines and structures mentioned don't apply to all schools) but sweet.

This book would be a great way to end to the school year with one last book and talk about their plans for the summer.

This would be great to read at the end of the school year. It is about a child who wants to do everything right on the last day of school!

This is a good book that is perfect for the last day of school. This is a perfect tale of a student trying his best to be on his best behavior even more than normal to work at a goal.

A boy thinks ahead to the last day of school and describes how perfectly he'll behave on that day. We get a list of all the things he WON'T do...a silly list of misbehaviors.

Great story for the end of year!! I think it will keep kids wondering what will happen next, and what he won't do on the last day of school! Good detail, I would recommend it.
