When Suzy Sue goes to preschool for the first time, the farm animals miss her so much that they hatch a wacky plan to bring her home. But they just may change their minds when they see how much fun Suzy Sue is having! Mij Kelly and Mary McQuillan capture the emotions of every family with this warm and funny story of a little girl going to school for the first time and those who miss her at home. (Ages 2-5)
From the reviews:
“The playful, energetic illustrations on white canvas nicely juxtapose changing perspectives (e.g., the farm at a distance and then up close; the exterior and interior of the preschool), while bouncy rhymes nicely capture the farm animals’ easily swayable opinions toward preschool. A fitting read-aloud to cure first-day-of-school jitters.”
