Book Review By MamaLuvsBooks: 
I decided to read “Tired of School” by, Dicy McCullough with my kids because every single morning my 4-year old son gives me a hard time about going to school. He says, “Mom, I don’t want to go to school. I’m tired of school!” I’m thinking really buddy, and you’re only in preschool! This book was cute because the main character was tired of school as well, but discovers throughout the book what he does like about school and then he likes it in the end. After reading this with my kids we brainstormed some ideas about what is FUN about school. Now in the mornings I can say, “Are you sure you don’t want to go and see what fun things you’re going to do today? Maybe it’s something fun and cool like at John Allen’s school?”

1. It is easy to read (my 2nd grader reads it to my 4-year old son)

2. It has a nice rhyme pattern to it
3. It has cute illustrations
4. You can connect the story to real life to educate kids
5. My kids think it’s fun to read and it’s 28 pages
6. It is a nice large-sized paperback book 

7. It’s received other positive reviews on Amazon
