. Back to school is tough for anyone, but can you imagine if you were Bigfoot?
Quirky illustrations will win readers over including a favorite on the first spread depicting a young student coming unglued over a pile of texts including the titles: Learning Is Hard, Hard Math, Impossible Math, Vague Geography, and Grammar Ain't Easy.
Bigfoot is worried about school. Shopping for clothes and shoes is impossible for someone his size. He decides school is overrated and he'll just stay home, but he will miss his teacher, Miss Sierra Nevada! And his friends. He thinks about all the fun he will miss with his friends and even dreams of becoming the Valebigtorian of the class! Bigfoot happily agrees to go back to school where he can meet his friends and have fun.
Bigfoot is an affable character smiling on each page. He is lovable and winsome and every reader will want to meet him.
This little charmer would be a great read for a child who is afraid of going to school for the first time or to a new school.
Highly recommended for young readers.
