Back to School Tortoise by Lucy George and illustration by Merel Eyckerman (Albert Whitman, 2011) is a perfect back-to-school story for the student or teacher you may know. Like many, Tortoise is a bit nervous about the first day of school. The story follows his worries and then takes him to the door of his classroom, where there is a surprise waiting for the reader.

This may be a great book for easing back-to-school jitters with a little laugh. The illustrations are fun and Raisin liked the depictions of various animals. (See a family review: I loved reading this!)
