Description



About the Book



The pigeon must go to school, but frets about math, learning the alphabet, heavy backpacks, and what the teacher and other birds will think of him.



Book Synopsis



Why does the Pigeon have to go to school? He already knows everything! And what if he doesn't like it? What if the teacher doesn't like him? What if he learns TOO MUCH!?!
Ask not for whom the school bell rings; it rings for the Pigeon!

My 4 year old loves this! Very funny, my son wants to read this every night. Was having a hard time in the morning getting ready for school. We talk about all the pigeons complaints and it’s puts a smile on his face.

My kid loves this book. He wants us to read this book every night!! I got this book for him a day before kindergarten to motivate him. He was also scared going to kindergarten. He didn’t want to go to school as well like the pigeon. It had a great ending and my son loves going to school. I also bought him the pigeon needs a bath! These books are funny and my son loves reading because of these books. Going to buy more the pigeon books.

As all pigeon books, this is hilarious and adorable. Love that it’s hardcover for a gift before starting school (pre-k through 1st) but I don’t suggest this for a child who’s apprehensive about starting. While it does end with positive feelings, 99% of the book is pure anxiety about going and all of the reasons why he doesn’t want to do it. This may not be helpful in some cases. Lol

Didn’t like this book much for a young reader. School is not presented in a positive light and it’s hard for the young reader to differentiate the presentation of what then pigeon it doing. I ended up returning the book since school was about to start and I didn’t want to have any battles.

The story and the manner in which it is told eased my nephew's uneasiness about his first day of school. He (and my sister the reader) really enjoyed it.
