Reviews The Pigeon Has to Go to School

  • Laura Harrison
    The Pigeon Has to Go to School, deals with the fear and anxiety of attending school for the first time. It is laugh out loud hilarious. This now and forever will be the go to book dealing with this issue. Take note booksellers and librarians of the world. The pigeon very effectively conveys the thoughts and fears of a first time student. Ofcourse the illustrations are amazing. The spread where the pigeon discovers he can go to school on a bus is ...

    Hilarious as always. I won't spoil the perfect ending. I love how Pigeon's postures and expressions tell almost the entire story -- there is very little in the way of environment for him to interact with.Bonus: don't miss the front CIP page. It's not really what you think.
  • Michele Knott
    I am so glad Mo Willems continues to delight his audiences.... even when they are adults and can't help but laugh out loud at the funny parts!
  • Mark Baker
    Pigeon has just learned that he has to start attending school. Surely, he doesn’t have to do that. After all, he already knows everything. Will there be math? There are too many letters! And Pigeon is not a morning bird. Will anything be able to change his mind?Author Mo Willems continues to find ways to tell stories using only pictures and dialogue that keep us engaged. This is another fast yet entertaining read. Most kids are excited about ge...

    I really liked the lesson of school being a place that should help you feel brave and prepared. As far as school-anxiety picture books go, this one is top tier.
  • Rod Brown
    Standard and solid Mo Willems goodness with a twist ending that really sticks the landing.
  • Laura McLoughlin
    The Pigeon is as delightful as ever.
  • Sara Magnafichi
    Any child who loves Mo Willems and the Pigeon is going to love this story! Pigeon worries about all the things that may or may not happen at school. "What if?" is his favorite question. The ending is PERFECT for those who are familiar with other Pigeon books! You will have to read it to find out, as to not spoil it. This is a great back to school book to read at the beginning of the year. You can have great conversations with kids around this boo...

    Was checking the holds shelf at the library for one of my requests and saw the new Pigeon book tagged for somebody else. Shamelessly took a couple of minutes to stand there and read it (before putting it back, of course). As expected, it's super cute.
  • Amy!
    Aww, Pigeon. Funny and wonderful and so so relatable.
  • Becky
    First sentence: WAIT! Don't read that title! Too late. Rats...Why do I have to go to school? I already know EVERYTHING! Go on--ask me a question. Any question!Premise/plot: The Pigeon is back in another picture book adventure. He's starred in MANY books including: Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!; The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog!; Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late!; The Pigeon Wants a Puppy!; The Duckling Gets a Cookie?!; The Pigeon Needs a Bath! T...

    This was too good and will be great to read at the beginning of school. I think my favorite parts are the end papers. :) Recommended.

    Might be one of my top Pigeon books. I don't know if its better than The Pigeon Needs A Bath though
  • Michele Knott
    So even though this book does not publish until July, I just want you to all know it's a must read. It's a must pre-order. You're going to read it at the very beginning of the school year, so you might a well make sure it's for sure going to be in your hands.All of the things you expect to see in a Pigeon book by Mo Willems is in there. And it will make you laugh out loud. I promise!
  • Jillian Heise
    This one will be perfect for back-to-school time.
  • Adele
    This was fun and it was nice to get a new Pigeon book. I felt like this one may not be quite as good as the earlier ones, but I may possibly be getting burned out on The Pigeon. There were a couple points where I felt like The Pigeon had some legitimate concerns about going to school and I'm not 100% sure they were adequately addressed, but the back inside cover spread illustration is sweet, comforting, and satisfying.
  • Meredith
    The Pigeon has a meltdown at the thought of having to attend school.Young readers will relate to the Pigeon's fears about going to school. This book provides a great opportunity for caregivers to discuss and address any worries their children may have about starting school.My preschooler's favorite part was the illustration of the Pigeon's head popping off, and I had to explain that one's head really won't pop off if one learns too much. Also, it...

    As my kids get bigger, and are not reading picture books, I've realized how much I've missed the humor of Mo Willems.I was SO excited to read a new Pigeon book by Willems! This book is just as hilarious as every other Pigeon book! I loved it! I recommend it to all - young or old - for a good belly laugh.
  • Emily
    Pigeon has to go to school, but he is scared and makes up excuses as to why he shouldn't have to go. In the end, he realizes that school can be fun and he can't wait to get there. Good for getting your kiddos, especially kiddos who have yet to endure a year of school, excited to learn again.
  • Krysta
    Mo Willems does it again! The Pigeon shares relatable fears about going to school the first time, but in a humorous, overly dramatic way. Best for those who have already read Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus (if you want to get all the jokes).
  • Leslie Swope
    This is my favorite of all the Pigeon books!
  • Twilight Gilles
    Don't forget to read the "copyright" information at the very beginning! You'll be missing out if you don't :)
