Lizzie and the Last Day of School
In first grade Lizzie meets her teacher Miss G., and Miss G. says they will have “the best year of school ever!” Well, Lizzie is excited school is a whole year! She loves school. Throughout the year, she reads books, studies nature, and learns about vegetables. But then Lizzie finds out there is only one school day left—and only a half day! Feeling so sad on her last day, she leaves her classroom without a hug. When she returns to say good bye, she discovers Miss G. is sad, too. Knowing that, Lizzie feels a bit better. And then something extraordinary happens—Lizzie learns about “summer school”!
This book is perfect for those who love school and hate to see it end! Woven into the story, Lizzie teaches her baby sister what she learns in school. Artist Kris Aro McLeod adds visual humor showing baby Lulu’s “understanding” of each lesson. For instance, Lulu’s understanding of a book is: eat it! The author and artist work well together to show Lizzie’s frustrations and joys.
