32. Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush (Harcourt, 2003)
Will Hillenbrand (Preschool-Grade 2)

It’s the first day at Mulberry School and everything is going wrong for one shy little pig. He decides it’s much better to hide under the mulberry bush than to play with all the other children. But soon he makes the wonderful discovery that a friend can turn up in the most unlikely place…

Come sing along with this comforting adaptation of the popular nursery song that’s sure to chase away the first-day jitters.

“This playful book will raise the spirits and expectations of nascent school-goers.”

Publishers Weekly

“…Hillenbrand's pastel watercolors are engaging and include details that add both humor and interest.”

School Library Journal

“… the child-friendly artwork [is] executed in fresh colors… featuring a diverse classroom that includes pigs of different colors as well as one in a wheel chair. Without being threatening, this is a realistic basis for first-day conversations.”
