Book Review: "Starting School" by Janet and Allan Ahlberg

⭐⭐⭐ out of 5
I had high hopes for this book after it started so well. 

The first few pages were about the first days and weeks in school which is exactly what I had hoped for, but then it sped on to show how the next three weeks go on three pages.  Hallowe'en is one sentence then it describes the feelings that everyone feels before the end of term and the Christmas play. 

It all feels a bit rushed to me... why not just concentrate on the children's first week in school instead of starting off so well then rushing through the rest of the term?

Sorry, but I feel this book only deserves three stars, which is a pity after it started so wonderfully.
