Your School Is The Best | Book Review

Your School is The Best will have you laughing out loud as you read the school adventure of one over the top cockroach and his family!
~ Momma Braga


This picture book follows the story of an eager cockroach and his family who hitch a ride to school — with hilarious results. For fans of I Don’t Want to Be a Frog.

Everyone’s favorite cockroach from Your Birthday Was the Best! is back, and this time he’s going to school . . . and bringing his whole family along for the ride!

From show-and-tell to arts and crafts, this little stowaway can’t wait to try it all . . . and maybe become the new teachers’ pet!

Charming, hilarious and just a tiny bit disgusting, this is a school tale with a twist.


Your School is The Best had us laughing out loud during story time as cockroach gets into some hilarious antics! It is amazing to see that there can be very different perspectives on the exact same situation.

Even though cockroach and family had the very best intentions. Those intentions were not exactly received well on the other end. I honestly can not blame the teacher’s reaction as I was itching my own head when cockroach was dancing on the teacher’s head – ew! LOL!

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give this book 5 rainbows out of 5! It was a colorful, imaginative and entertaining read for everyone in our family. Cockroach truly brings some fun perspective to school life. I am thrilled to see that it was enjoyed completely (by the Cockroach family at least)! 😉
