Tuula Korolainen, Marjo Nygård 2010: Kuono kohti koulua
The school for small mice opens its doors and the teacher is just as nervous as the students. The beginning is a bit slow, but soon the teacher and the children learn, how to work together.
The book tells about learning and getting along with different personalities, even though some are moles and others are mice. In the end even a magpie wants to come to school, while it seems so much fun.
This week school is starting in Finland and the first graders are eager to be big kids. The difference between the preschoolers and first-graders couldn't be bigger. I get a little crazy every year withe the school supplies: all the lovely pencases and pencils that aren't for sale at any other time of the year.
