51 months - the perfect read leading up to the first day of preschool... Plus O thought it was funny. ( )

Oliver realizes that bringing an alligator to his first day of school maybe wasn't such a good idea. ( )

Oliver is afraid to go to school and brings an alligator along. After the alligator eats everyone, Oliver realizes he is missing out on the fun and decides to get eaten himself. Good story about bravery. ( )

The artwork for this book really caught my eye. Our hero looks so worried as he approaches his first day of school. The illustrations are so simple, yet so expressive! The sketches seem to be made with pencil, but colored accents and some flat cut-out images are added for fun. This would be a great book for parents to read with a kiddo starting preschool or Kindergarten. It might be fun to read to a new pre-K or K class as a welcome, and could even be used to teach a shared vocabulary ("munch, munch, munch") to express fear.
