Get Ready for School

Albert Whitman & Company, August 2023

Written By Janet Nolan 

The custodian turns on the lights and sweeps the hallways. Is it time for school? Not yet! The cafeteria workers wash tables and stack lunch trays. Is it time for school? Not yet! Teachers unpack supplies and organize their classrooms. Is it time for school? Almost! The students are on their way, on foot, on bicycles, and in cars and buses. Welcome, everyone!


"Energetic, instructive & to spark conversations with kids about their own schools or to simply introduce them to the idea of attending school for the first time." —Kirkus Reviews

"A cheery conclusion to this bright-eyed portrait of the individuals who make school happen for students." Publishers Weekly
