Grover Goes to school is a book meant for beginners from a series called Sesame Street. This series is something I grew up with as a kid and I always found to be interested in. It is a beginners reading book because the wording is easy to read and understand, it incorporates humor that is satisfying to readers who are just starting to read, which will help them become interested in reading. The story is based off of the typical first day of school. It incorporates topics of nervousness for school, meeting your teacher, sharing, being nice to others, and friendship. The main character—Grover—goes to school and learns that making friends and sharing is not always easy. He ends up getting frustrated with his classmates because he feels like he is being taken advantage of. He gives his nice crayons to a child in exchange for a broken toy truck, cleans up his classmates arts and crafts, does not get snack because of that, misses out on jumping rope at recess, and trades his lunch with someone else for something he does not like. Grover then ends up having a break down because he did not have a good day. Because of his break down, one of his friends cheers him up and Grover realizes he has made great new friends. The LEA aspects of this book include first day of school jitters, stresses of school, learning that one can make friends, and that one should always be nice, but they can learn how to say no. Students can learn from all of this. The illustrations in this book are fun, vibrant, and entertaining. The illustrator did a fantastic job at showing the characters emotions and drawing pictures that corresponded with the dialogue. ( )
