Most kids are a little anxious about going into a new class at school. This is a fun way to talk about all those anxieties.
Everyone gets nervous about starting up a new school year. It's normal to be nervous about new teachers, new friends, and new things to learn. But it's even harder when you're Bigfoot! Bigfoot is worried because he stands out in a huge way and he feels very self conscious about his size. School aged children will definitely be able to relate to these feelings, and the brightly colored, humorous illustrations will make it an awesome book to share with kids. This is one that would make a terrific ...more
The start of a new school year can cause anxieties for just about anyone, but in the case of Bigfoot, his worries are just as large as he is. In humorous fashion this picture book describes some of his worries and then offers reasons for him to head back to school. While there are many bad things that MIGHT happen, there are just as many reasons for going back. After all, he has the chance to see his friends, work with a great teacher, learn new things, and go on field trips. Even a big guy like ...more

If you think your back to school problems are big, you haven’t seen anything because Bigfoot’s are giant sized like a back to school haircut that takes all day. He frets and worries himself into not going, but then he remembers his friends and how much fun they have learning and creating. Maybe going back to school isn’t so bad after all.

Writers Samantha Berger and Martha Brockenbrough have a humorous entry in the back to school picture book cannon that early elementary students will chuckle ove

For all those who have ever gotten the back to school jitters! Bigfoot is feeling anxious about heading back to school, and imagines all the horrible things that could go wrong on his first day back. But soon he starts thinking about his friends and the best teacher ever, Miss Sierra Nevada and how he would miss them all if he didn't go back. Very cute story and the illustrations by Pressler are equally adorable!

Bigfoot has big problems.... and the biggest is going back to school this year. Getting clothes that fit, shoes that fit, and a new haircut, are just a few of the minor problems Bigfoot has to face. So he decides not to go... until he remembers his friends and how much he will miss them if he doesn't go back to school.

After a fun summer, school is hard to start, but it's even harder if you are the biggest student in class. In this cute book, kids will learn that their uniqueness can be a strength as they start the next year.

Clever story about going back for the new school year. Bigfoot shares his anxieties and frustrations as he prepares to start school. Young readers will relate to his concerns and issues as they get ready to head back to class too.

What's not to love? It's big, it's colorful, it's funny and it's about a character who just happens to be Bigfoot! Nice and bright, the illustrations just add to the story by providing lots for the children to look at and to discuss. I hope there will be more adventures with Bigfoot!

Everyone needs a teacher named Miss Sierra Nevada!!!! Love it!! Bigfoot has a lot of "big" anxieties for returning to school. Anxieties that are very real for young ones...maybe even old ones too. Hilarious illustrations make this book a fun one to share at the beginning of the school year.

Great book on going back to school and all the problems and worries you face...but balanced with all the good things to do and learn, and friends to be with. You really would not want to be big foot if you had to buy back to school clothes.

I wanted to like this one more than I did. The concept and illustrations are adorable. Young Bigfoot is getting ready for a new school year and has trouble finding clothes and other items that fit. The text just wasn't as cute as I wanted it to be. Worth the read though.

Awesome illustrations and the madcap fun spirit of the Muppets.
I like the joke tossed in for parents who are craft beer aficionados (Miss Sierra Nevada).
Very silly! Fun illustrations.
