This is an adorable and super cool story about going back to school and school routine.

I loved the fact that the font is big and easy to read since my 5 year old is still in her practicing face and doesn't quite read well yet. I also liked that the dialogue was placed in 'dialogue bubbles' and 'thought clouds' next to the characters because I could explain the difference between the two to my little one.

The illustrations are fun and colorful and the fact that Bailey is a dog and tends to do dog things, while all the rest of the kids are human, helped me make a point that even when you feel or look different, which many kids do, you can still fit in, and that being different is being special. Even when they're not necessarily physically different, they might not always enjoy the same activities other do, and that's okay. So I loved the message behind the story.
