Fun little book! :-)

I enjoyed listening to this fun little book, the first day of school, with Koko and her teacher. What a nice way to introduce little kids to our faith. I can't wait to play this book for my little girl. I encourage you to get this book.

Your child will love this!

This audiobook is very interesting for kids. As a Mom for a preschooler, I consider this audio as a precious gift that a parent could give a child. This audio story delivers a strong message on love, kindness, and good manners that a human should develop within himself or herself since childhood. I made my boy listen to this audiobook, and I saw the rays of happiness and satisfaction through his smile while listening. My son loved the narration, and so did I! I'm looking forward to having more audiobooks from this author in the future. I think parents who have children under the age of 10 should take my recommendation for this audio story. Loved it!

Wonderful messages and illustrations

This book has made it very easy to chat about manners and kindness with children. The cadence of the rhyming means that it’s easy for my children to recite back. Having audible for the car means that they have been able to follow along in their books. Very sweet.

Awesome Audibook!

The performance of the storytelling takes you into the story, I thought I was in it. I like the cover with the Koala too. I liked the story about the love, kindness and value that the book brings to our children going to school. I made it as a present for my niece.

I recommend it for parents who have a 3-8 year old child. Thanks to the author for sharing his values.

Great Book to help Children Going to School!

I loved the voices of the different characters and how appealing it would be to children. Such good questions they asked as well about what different things the author was saying, like, what is patience? It was so sweet to pray together at the end and teach children to rely on God when they are trying to do good. Thank you!

Adorable story!

What a delightful story for kids! As a mom of three, I realize there are so many life lessons to be taught while my kids are under my care. This book does a great job in showing how love, patience, and kindness play out in a way that is easy for young kids to understand. I love the subtle rhyming that Author Mel accomplished here. Perfect for any parent looking for a sweet story to read at bedtime. A great start to learning about the Fruit of the Spirit!
