“Freckles is Scared of School,” is book 1 in Vickianne Caswell’s 'Freckles the Bunny Series', and is an adorable start to a series that children will enjoy reading. Freckles loves playing and spending time at home with her mom; however, Freckles is suddenly told that she is going to be starting school the next day. Freckles does not want to go to school and has dreams about how awful it will be. However, when Freckles arrives at school, she realizes school is not what she was expecting it to be and she enjoys her day with her classmates. When it is time to go home at the end of the school day, Freckles does not want to leave, but she is reminded she will be able to come back the next day.
This is a cute story that discusses beginning school, an experience that many children are anxious about just as Freckles is. Young children will enjoy reading about Freckles and be comforted that school is not scary and it is really is an enjoyable experience. I love that the author uses her own pets from her childhood as the characters in the book; it is such a sweet idea! Also, the animals are all different and, therefore, they create a diverse classroom for Freckles. Children will be in a classroom with other children who are different from themselves and this allows for learning about others, but it can also be a scary or intimidating experience to find oneself with others who are different. Freckles met different animals and although they had different ways of doing things, they had an enjoyable day together as a class and friends.
