KIRKUS REVIEW

Originally an English-only text, this new version of Carlson’s cheery look at a new kindergartner’s excitement is a welcome revision. Henry the mouse is so thrilled by the first day of kindergarten that he’s ready to head straight from bed to school, but his mother takes him through his morning procedures—washing up, getting dressed (and almost tying his shoes), having breakfast—as they discuss what he’s likely to do once he arrives at school. The first sight of the room, filled with unknown children, overwhelms Henry initially, but sensitive treatment from teacher and mother lead to a successful first day. Carlson’s illustrations are bright, full of action and emotion, and offer lots of particularities for young listeners and readers to attend to. Almost certainly a perennial favorite, this bilingual edition helps strapped budgets go farther. (Picture book. 3-6)
