My 5 year old's review: "Mom, that wasn't very good."

This is a really cute book for a student who is nervous about starting school, especially a kindergarten student. However, I felt like it was a book meant more for a parent and child instead of a teacher and students. So basically parents, awesome book for your nervous kindergarten student. Teachers, leave it at home. There are books that are better fitting for the classroom. Otherwise, great book for reducing the "jitter-bugs" before arriving on the first day of school.
This book is about a boy who is worried about his first day of school. He makes up crazy scenarios that he thinks may happen on his first day. This book is good to read on the first day of school. This book could open a discussion about the things the students thought school was going to be like for them. This book is good to read for students in grades K-1.
This book is about Stinky Face getting ready for his first day of kindergarten. He asks his mom all these silly questions about what might happen on his first day of school. He uses his imagination to create all his silly questions. I would recommend using this book for kids who are nervous about the first day of school and for kids who have big imaginations.

A little boy was starting kindergarten and he was supposing all these things could happen. He supposed that the sink had grape juice instead of water, the fish tank grew larger, or if the the armadillo starts to chose him for his macaroni dinner. His mother told him that he would rfemain himself. he would drink the grape juice and swim in the pool.

This book is a very simple book that can be used to teach punctuations and can be used for emergent readers. There are simple sentence that include periods, exclamation points, and question marks. It can also be used for the first day of school. It can be used for children who worry or have anxiety about the first day of school.

This book was okay to me. It would be great for the first day of a Kindergarten class. It would allow the children to see other children have worries concerning school. It could open a discussion to see if the students had other worries about coming to Kindergarten. The teacher and students could help ease these concerns.

Very funny book. A mom reassures her son that kindergarten will be fine after he keeps coming up with all the silly things that could possibly go wrong. A great book to help children relieve some of the anxieties they themselves may have about first starting school. Could also be used for predicting...

Personally, i would never use this book in my classroom just because it was missing something to me. I didn't understand where the stinky face part really mattered or not but it would be good for students just beginning school. It has a funny perespective to looking at the anxieties some students may face.

This book was only just ok for me. This book will find its happy place in our collection about going back to school and easing into kindergarten. I think parents and teachers will enjoy it because of the content, but overall not a stand out book.

I loved how the illustrations in this story seemed very realistic. Kindergartners would love to hear this story on the first day of school and would eventually read it to themselves throughout the school year.

This book is full of laughter. A mother reassures her son when he imagines silly things that might go wrong on the first day of kindergarten. I would read this book on the first day of school to my students.

Level 1 beginning reader that is dialogue between son and mother about kindergarten. Humorous because he provides silly examples like, "what if the sink in my classroom pours grape juice instead of water?"

This was cute, as all of the Stinky Face books are, but because of the mom's answers were very pared down, it lacked the charm of the true picture books by this team. Probably not a reread.
Monique Mcdonald
An insightful inquiring student, who has to know that everything will be okay when he starts school, as nearly every child does. This book would work for those who are starting school.
This book is good for helping students who may worry about starting school and the unknown. Also, it shows the importance of communicating to others how you feel.

Great for a parent to read to a kid who has the first day of school jitters. Very funny and perfect for imaginative kindergarteners.
