Big Top Primary School! Your First Day of Circus School by Tara Lazar

What kid wouldn't want his first day to be at Clown School?

Even the stand-in for the school bus is as commodious as a clown car!

Don't worry. An endless number of seats!

But the Ringmaster does call the roll for all the new pupils:
Ladeez and Gentle-Men, Boys and Girls!
This is the most amazing day of all: your first day of school!  Step right up!

Right away the uniforms give it away. They are clown costumes, strong-man tights, band uniforms, and other natty circus garb.

They are introduced to their teacher--Miss Stupendous!

They are advised that the school cafeteria is a ZOO! In fact, it's a jungle in there!

But new students are congratulated for their high expectations as they climb up to take their turns on the trapeze!

Going to circus school is like being a human cannonball--a BLAST from the circus cannon, in Tara Lazar's latest, Your First Day of Circus School (Tundra, 2019).  With Melissa Crowton's colorful illustrations, this first-day-of-school tale is a lively introduction to circus school doings.
