If Animals Went To School | Book Review

“An adorable children’s book that can help with the first day of school butterflies.”

– Momma Braga


If animals went to school…what would they do?

Beaver would practice counting with sticks. Goat would snack on the storybooks. And at recess, Goose would glide down Giraffe’s neck slide!

Across the animal kingdom, every creature would learn, play, and make new friends.


If Animals Went To School is absolutely adorable in every way! The story is great for the little ones who may be embarking on their very first day of school.

We take a journey through a day of school through the eyes of the animal kingdom and I truly love the concept! Who doesn’t like seeing animals in the classroom?!


The illustrations are beautifully done with a story to match. It is creative and one that a child can relate, especially if they are nervous for school. By the end, even Beaver enjoys his day and doesn’t want to go back home. That means school was a success. It makes it a great example for little ones.

Therefore, for this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give this book 10 stars out of 5! It is recommended for children ages two to six and we know your little will love it. 🙂
