Like many children, Chu is nervous about his first day of school. He has the usual concerns and questions; what will happen in school, will they like him. Once he gets there, he discovers that he has to introduce himself to the other children by saying his name and one thing that he loves to do. That’s when he becomes very quiet and is reluctant to share, but then, finally, he has no choice because it all comes out. This is a cute, humorous picture book that might just have to be read several times to help alleviate those first day jitters.

Chu is a little nervous about his first day of school. His parents reassure him that everyone will be nice, but it isn't until Chu gets to share his special talent - and everyone loves it - does he feel good about school. Fun, bright illustrations, and, of course, big sneezes. ( )

This book is very cute! Gaiman plays it straight with a nice story about a sneezing panda who makes friends his first day at school. ( )

Chu is a young panda who is embarking on his first day of school. He goes into class very nervous and as his classmates go around telling about something they each do Chu just sits quiet. When he is the only one left to go he sneezes and says that is what he does. This book touches on first day of school jitters, characteristics of animals, and being accepted into a classroom. The illustrations are colorful and help tell the story well. The animals look realistic as well as the classroom. Using this book to teach about animals and their characteristics would be different and fun for kids. ( )
