First Day at Bug School

Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's

Hidden at the bottom of the garden in the long grass is the Bug School. It's the first day of term, and when the tiny school bell rings, the new pupils appear. Waving goodbye to their parents, they enter Miss Bumblebee's classroom. She assures them they'll have the best day ever.

Lessons begin: spiders learn about the perils of waterspouts, crickets practise music for the school play, and ladybirds do counting spots. After lunch, it's time to play and make new friends. Storytime ends the day - and, naturally, everyone wants to come back tomorrow!

With bright bustling illustrations fizzing with quirky details and insect jokes, this cheery, rhyming introduction to starting school from a unique bugs-eye point of view is reassuring and fun.
