Oscar Goes to School by Meaghan Fisher and Emma Rose Fisher-Rowe is the adorable story of Oscar the tabby cat who wants to go to school. One day he crawls into Emma Rose’s bookbag when she is not looking. When the bus driver honks, Emma runs to the bus. She does not know Oscar is inside her bookbag. She sees Oscar in school when she is taking out her yellow file. Oscar jumps out of her bag and all the students gather around Emma Rose and Oscar. They are all excited and Oscar purrs as the students pet him. How does Oscar’s day at school go?

This book is special because it is written by a seven-year-old and that will motivate many children to write stories, no matter how young they are, and motivate parents to encourage their kids like Meaghan, Emma’s mother, did so that they can pursue their dreams. The fact that Oscar is Emma Rose’s pet makes the story more relatable and palpable to young readers. The illustrations are charming and they bring the story and the characters alive to readers.

It is a good bedtime storybook for parents and grandparents to read out to their children and grandchildren and can be used in classrooms for read aloud and storytelling sessions. Children will definitely have stories to tell just like Emma Rose and this book will inspire them to publish their storybooks just as Emma Rose did. It is also a story for animal lovers, especially those who have cats at home.
