Go Back to School With BAILEY! A Children’s Book Review + Giveaway

It’s here, Back to School time! Many kids across the country have already gone back to school, some have a few more days off until Labor Day. BAILEY, a very cute children’s book by best-selling author Harry Bliss, is available now, sharing a fun view of going to school. This book is being released around the perfect time, just in time for the fun back to school season! If any of your kids need motivating, this would be a good bedtime read.

Meet Bailey, a dog who surprises and charms his fellow human classmates with his irrepressible antics. In this funny new book from the bestselling children’s illustrator Harry Bliss, school proves to be an unexpected place for Bailey to do all sorts of things he loves: reading, fetching, painting, digging, singing — and making friends!

In this fun filled story, Bailey the dog gets all ready for his first day of school that he attends with his human classmates. I think it is a cute and creative approach to show what fun school can be. Bailey tackles all sorts of things that he loves to do, including getting dressed in the morning and picking out his favorite clothes, chasing the bus (did he miss it?) and socializing with his classmates! All of the students at the school seem to like Bailey, you can tell by their thoughts, which are cleverly used as bubbles on each page for different school scenarios. Thanks to Bailey, the ever-popular term “My dog ate my homework” will actually get some merit!

Check out the book trailer:

I read BAILEY to MJ and he really liked it! He goes to preschool so he has an idea of what it is like to get dressed in the morning and head off for some learning fun. He has his mornings where he just doesn’t want to budge out of bed, so I can use this book as a reminder of how wonderful his school day will be. That’ll perk him up!
