Back To School: Milk Goes To School by Terry Border #bookreview

 Milk Goes To School

By Terry Border

School is starting around the country (not until after Labor Day here in NJ.) Many new kindergarten students are anxious about what to expect in this new experience. What a better way to prepare them with a fantastically humorous book like Milk Goes To School by Terry Border.


First days of school are tough, and making new friends is even tougher. Milk's dad gave her a sparkly new backpack and told her that she was the creme de la creme, but most of the other kids don't seem to agree. In fact, some of her new classmates think Milk is just little a bit spoiled...

MILK GOES TO SCHOOL explores the universal difficulties that kids face when making new friends at school while also demonstrating ingenious word play and laugh-out-loud humor. As Milk struggles to win over her new classmates, readers will enjoy picking up on numerous food-related puns strewn throughout the text and images of Border’s imaginative story. Border’s knack for kid-friendly humor shines through once again and adults are also likely to crack a smile while reading this back-to-school charmer.

Our Thoughts:

Our family had a good laugh with this one. The idea of real food going to school and what their interactions would be like translated to a truly hysterical book. Lots of cliches and stereotypes make us laugh out loud. Perhaps our favorite page of the book was when the food kids had to draw pictures of their families. This book has some hidden gems in it with some bully fixing and some good ideas on how to be a friend.
