Is it cute? Yes. Is it really a first-day-of-school book? No. Did my kid make me read it 800 times anyway? Yes.

I loved it! The best part might have been trying to find Ant-Man and Wasp on each page.

The illustrations are amazing. Super cute and my kids love it.
A story of firsts as Groot from the Marvel Universe finds adventure in his universe as he learns valuable lessons on his first day of Groot.

A super adorable book with fun, colorful and picture perfect illustrations. The children will love Groot's first day of learning. Children will learn about sharing, counting, spelling, teamwork and learning to sing along. Groot is a huge fan of Spider Man. He carried along a Spider Man backpack throughout his adventures. I loved that the Avengers were included in the book and were part of the fun and learning experience Groot had throughout the book. I had the most fun looking for Ant-Man and Wa ...more

This book is precious! Marvel fans will love finding all the Easter eggs and seeing what the heroes are up to in this cutesy universe. The book really doesn't fit with canon--either comics or MCU--so some fans may not like it as much. However, the book teaches good "lessons" and shows non-traditional families. A sweet book.

For: Marvel/MCU/Guardians of the Galaxy fans; readers looking for a movie tie-in to read with a child just entering school.

Possible red flags: some readers may feel that the d

Alien superheroes may not go to what we'd think of as school, but they do have things to learn. Groot and Rocket learn about sharing, teamwork, and other important superhero skills in this adventure.

This is jam-packed with Marvel superheroes. A cute little reimagining of a first day of school, Guardians of the Galaxy style with cute little Groot and Rocket. I like the vibrant colors, and the lessons learned a good ones that even little human superheroes can put into practice. Hand this to little

If there is ever an audition to be the voice of Groot, I would do so before a child is even able to be conceived. LoL. Forget that analogy.

Anyway, Groot is the epitome of my favorite superhero. He’s literally the superhero of innocence and kindness. I’d do anything to have Groot be my superhero. I really hope they don’t destroy my vision and hopes for such a promising rising superhero.

I would love to be apart of the development of the Groot franchise! I believe he is even greater than Spider-Ma

The art in this is EVERYTHING.
The story is simplistic and very um, weak, but the art makes up for it ALL.
I want prints of every page! 😂
Tony Stark wearing a BURGER AVENGER apron, Doctor Strange levitating cake, and Groot single handedly busting up a fight between Nebula and Ronan the Accuser is ALL kinds of awesomeness.

And the art of Captain Marvel and Doctor Strange in particular?

I found a copy of this cute little kids picture book at a local small book shop. I obviously had to open it up and read it. The illustrations are amazing. I really loved how it has all the marvel characters from all the movies, and that later in the pages of the book it even has Thor illustrated with his beer gut; just like he is in End game! such an adorable book for kids who love Marvel or even a good way to introduce kids to marvel in Future generations!

Not a first day of school book, as one might think. But a cute pick for Marvel fans. The Avengers look adorable and it's fun to spot which ones are on each spread. The illustrations are more interesting than the text.

A follow up to "Night Night Groot", this fun, colorful picture book has the same great rhyming scheme and Marvel hero and villain cameos as the first book, but with a focus on school and learning. A must for any little Marvel fan, but also great for any kid going to school.

Bookaday #68. 5 stars. I love anything Baby Groot and this gets 5 stars because it’s so stinking cute! Rhyming text is so-so, the strength is in the illustrations full of details from Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers. Take off the dust jacket - you can’t miss the end pages!!!

Cute, but uneven. Will only appeal to kids who are already Marvel enthusiasts. Ages 4-6.

Ant-Man and Wasp are everywhere (seriously they are even on the cover)! This will surely delight your budding superheroes.

Enjoyed this little picture book.
A rhyming first day of school books for super-hero lovers! They will love seeing Groot learn like they do and identifying all his superhero friends throughout his day.

First one was better, but this one has Antman AND the Wasp to find in every picture! So much fun.

What a great read for your little Marvel:Guardians if the Galaxy fan. The sing song tone of the text is catchy and the book is beautifully illustrated. We all have first’s and Groot is no exception.

The illustrations are phenominal. A simple but charming story about young Groot.

Trying for morals, but sloppy

It’s fun to see all the superheroes in this kids book, but the moral lessons and rhymes feel forced. Nice art and keeps within the “I am Groot” language ok.

Easily 4 stars because of Cale Atkinson's illustrations of Make Marvel Mine characters!
