SPENCER GOES TO SCHOOL is a delightful story about Spencer's first day at school. The book follows Spencer as he goes to school, meets his new teacher, learns new things, and makes new friends. The unique board book shape features Spencer on each spread as he goes about the day. Key words on each page label different items around the school bus and classroom.

What I loved: This is another really great adventure with Spencer. Repeating characters are great for little ones, who will enjoy seeing Spencer across stories. His mother and his fish also make an appearance in this story. The cool shape is a fun feature of these board books, with Spencer appearing on the left side of every page spread. The bright and colorful illustrations will appeal to young readers, and the font is clear and easy to read on each page. With the addition of labeled items on each page, this aids in early word recognition.

The story is one that is great for toddlers who may be starting preschool soon. The book walks through the day in basic terms, catching the highlights of going to school for the first time, such as meeting a new teacher, making new friends, and learning. The simple terms of the book will work well for this young age group.

Final verdict: Overall, SPENCER GOES TO SCHOOL is a delightful board book that is perfect for children who might be starting preschool for the first time.
