5 Reviews
There’s a lot to do on the first day of school: meet new friends, practice writing, eat lunch, and run around. But it’s not only children who do these things—parents do, too. This charming story follows the day of a young boy and his working mother. Even though they’re in different places, the soft, lively illustrations show that they’re never far from each other’s thoughts. And when it’s time to go home, they’ll both be ready for a hug and eager to ask, “What did you do today?”

Review: What Did You Do Today?: The First Day of School

User Review  - Ashley Allen - Goodreads

I would use this book to talk to students about the first day of school. I would talk about how we will miss our parents but they will come and get us at the end of the day. I would also use it to talk about all the fun and exciting things they will be learning in school. Read full review
