Although he's a dog, Bailey loves attending school. Like many other elementary school students, he has a little trouble catching the bus, whether it's going or coming from school. He loves reading and math, but his favorite subject is lunch when he can trade dog bones for sandwiches. Although things don't always go right for Bailey, he knows that school is the place he belongs, and he makes plenty of friends there. This title would be a great read-aloud for the start of a new school, especially to reassure those who feel anxious about the beginning of a new year. The pastel illustrations show Bailey's personality vividly, even in the wiggle of his tail or the frown of concentration on his face. One of my favorite scenes shows Bailey giving a report on Fala, the canine companion of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt with a tiny photo of the President and a huge one of Fala.
