Spotlight: Sorry, Grown-Ups, You Can’t Go to School! by Christina Geist and illustrator Tim Bowers
This fun role-reversal picture book will help reluctant students see the appeal of school!
It’s just another school morning…until Mom, Dad, Grandma, and even Bow-wow the dog BEG the kids to let them come to school, too! Dad can tie his own shoes–why can’t he come? Mom is all ready with her brand-new backpack–she’s allowed, right? No! Only kids and teachers!
Christina Geist’s warm, interactive story is the perfect tool for parents of kids who are reluctant or nervous about going to school. The fun refrain–“Sorry, grown-ups! You can’t go to school! Only kids and teachers! Only kids and teachers!”–brilliantly paints school as something exclusive and desirable…which kids can access! Tim Bowers’s lively illustrations enhance the fun and heighten the hilarity. This is sure to be a back-to-school classic in many families and classrooms!
