" 3rd grade friendly. This book shows that children all of the world go to school but not everyone does it the same way " said.

" Diversity in childrens school experiences and how much they have in common " said.

" This book is great for parents and teachers for learning about how students across the world prepare for the next school year. I would use this book for a multicultural text and also to discuss the seven continents. " said.

" This book could be used K-5 to teach students different things that students do around the world to starting art the first day of school. It can also be used as a geography lesson with naming the different places that is in the book. " said.

" A wonderful look at the first day of school for eleven different children from different countries and cultures. I love the author's note as well as the bibliography and web resources. This would be a great way to introduce other cultures or a really fun activity for the first day of school! I only wish that there was a pronunciation guide for the many different language words that are included! " said.

"Very good book for children to learn about what school is like for children around the world. Some of the places mentioned are: Kenya, China, and the USA. The book is large and there are wonderful illustrations depicting some of the events the children describe. I'd say this is better for a child at least 5-6 as the children's stories are each one page with a second page for bullet points summarizing school in that location. My little one (3 years old) got bored about halfway through, so younger ones might enjoy looking at the pictures more and having you summarize what's going on. She preferred This Is the Way We Go to School: A Book about Children Around the World because it had less text so I made it through that one faster, but I much preferred this one because I enjoyed the in depth information whereas the other one is just about how the children travel to school." said.

"This is a really neat book that describes the first day of school for children all over the world. In this book, we get a glimpse into the lives of children from China, Japan, Russia, Australia, and many more places across the globe. This book allows students to see other children and cultures around the world and how their school life is different and also the same. I would use this book during the first week of school to teach students that children all over the world go through some of the same things on the first day of school as them, as well as different things. This would make a great compare and contrast lesson. This story can also be used for a social studies lesson. For example, it would be neat to look up on a globe each place that is mentioned in the book. " said.

"I think this book is AWESOME!!

I heard about this book from a teacher blogger. It is about first days of school around the world. Included in this book are descriptions of school days in Kenya, Kazakhstan, Canada, Australia, Japan, China, Peru, Germany, India, Russia, and the United States. On each page, there is a little story of a child from that country, and then a list of facts about school, children, or activities.

I am TOTALLY going to use this as my first unit of the year! I think we will cover one country a day. I'll read the pages and then we will do an extension activity! Like origami on Japan day.

The book is super informative, I think the kids will have a good time finding the commonalities and differences between each of the countries and our own country. We can make a chart and learn!
