The first day of school is always important for children, so we must help them make it a relaxed experience. Jennifer Morhaime teaches young readers what school is like and what emotions they may face. She also shows them the different activities that take place and the subjects that are taught. Effie Goes to School (Effie's Adventures) is about Effie's first day of school. In the morning, her mom accompanies her to wait for the bus, but from there, Effie makes her way alone. On the bus, she has new experiences and tries to make a friend, but things don't turn out too well. However, she is not discouraged and maintains a positive attitude at school. Effie is friendly and shows that she likes to learn. She slowly makes friends in class and ends up having an enjoyable day.
The illustrations are adorable, and I liked them because they portray the school as a safe environment to learn and make friends. The characters are cheerful and eye-catching. Effie's personality is outgoing and demonstrates that even when there are difficulties, you should continue to have the right approach. In addition, children will learn to socialize and understand the rules of interacting. I also appreciated that Jennifer Morhaime shows everyday experiences when a child arrives in a new environment because knowing what to expect will make it easier for children to feel secure and confident when attending classes. For these reasons, Effie Goes to School (Effie's Adventures) is perfect for teaching children what the first day of school will be like.
