Praise For Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten?

“This story’s simple lesson about individuality is cleverly expressed through Vernick’s gentle wit and Jennewein’s crayon-outlined kindergartners—most of all, the furry and ungainly reader surrogate with whom kids will readily relate.”
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“As an embodiment of school anxiety, this buffalo leads the herd-plus, he’s got a hump.”
-Kirkus

“Vernick’s amusing tale will prove handy as a first-day-of-school book recommendation for children and teachers alike.”
-School Library Journal

“The breezy, clap-on-the-shoulder reassurance of the text is both bolstering and funny as it introduces, via buffalo, some key aspects of kindergarten experience.”
-Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
