I would like a giraffe in my school!
Sophia: I am getting ready to go to school and I am very excited. When I opened this book I liked looking at all the things to do with school and I pointed at all the numbers. I liked seeing all the boys and girls on their way to school and I really hope there are animals in my school. I would like a giraffe in my school. I liked the page about our classroom, I would love to dress up in my school.
Mum: The pages are all bright and colourful and the book covers everything from waking up and getting ready for school to lunchtime and home time.
