Back-to-School Picture Books to Brighten Any Kid’s First Day

The Pigeon HAS to Go to School!

Written and illustrated by Mo Willems

He already knows everything anyway, so why should he go to school? That’s the perfectly reasonable question Willems’s neurotic, know-it-all Pigeon asks as he faces the inevitable — his first time at school. Naturally, he’s full of dread. “What if I REALLY don’t like it!?” And, “What will the other birds THINK of me?” The ending is so clever, Pigeon’s ever-growing flock of fans might just applaud. It involves the school bus he will have to ride, bringing back fond, funny memories of his very first book, “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!”

40 pp. Hyperion. $16.99. (Ages 3 to 5)
