Synopsis

This generous board book takes the two toddler puppies through the day, from waking up in the morning to going home from nursery school in the afternoon. Each page highlights objects and a narrative thread helps parents discuss the whole process of going to nursery school or daycare. Georg Hallensleben's characteristic bold paintings of Gaspard and Lisa feeding the fish in their classroom, building towers of ABC blocks, going up and down on the seesaw, painting, and going home after a busy day are irresistible.

Lisa's is the better story—Gutman pays more attention to the problems of being small in a world of large people, and Lisa is conjured with real charm—but Gaspard's is more impressive visually.
