Bobby Button Goes to School

School is cool!

Bobby is a button on Isabella’s favorite red t-shirt. Isabella prepares for school and picks the red t-shirt for her first day. So, Bobby and his siblings also prepare for school. Bobby has jitters, but he also hopes to find familiar faces at school and make friends. Finally, the buttons family and Isabella take the bus to school. They meet the other kids. What happens to Bobby and Isabella?

We picked this cover for its title. The book addresses the fear of the first day at school and how to ease it with positive reinforcements. Illustrations that are digitally made and cartoon-styled support the story. The book has two coloring pages at the end.

The first day at school can bring jitters to kids, and Bobby Button Goes to School by Doug Coates attempts to ease the school’s first day through Bobby’s pleasant experiences.
