A couple of funny point-of-view moments (such as the school getting embarrassed when its fire alarm goes off) weren't enough. The jokes and the interesting point of view kept it from being a 2. Please no more first day of school books--especially not among the Caldecott contenders! I get that this is a fun topic for school teachers and maybe some parents, but gads. It's not a genre. It's another situation where editors who talk at SCBWI meetings and professional conferences say they don't want to see any more of these manuscripts (along with the books about 'me and my pet'), and yet year after year each house cranks out a few more.
