The students at Hilltop School are very busy. Fritz is trying to build a Superconducting Super Collider for the school Science Fair. Timothy and Claude are baking treats to share with the class for the Measuring Day party. And Charles is doing his best to perfect his bald eagle screech in time for Bird Week. In this collection of six stories, Rosemary Wells uses her celebrated humor and charm to touch on the laughter, frustrations, skirmishes, and friendships that are part of every school-aged child's life.

Rosemary Wells is the eminently popular author and illustrator of more than 75 books for children.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-With these six self-contained stories, Wells expands on Timothy Goes to School (Dutton, 1992). Each tale features a different animal character in a recognizable kindergarten situation. There are bullies; teasing; a birthday party; an onstage show; and classroom units on bugs, birds, measuring, and science-fair projects. These experiences ring true, except, perhaps, for the availability of a chemistry lab (usually associated with much older students) adjacent to the kindergarten classroom. Ultimately, these stories can reassure young children about school and help them negotiate situations that they may encounter. The text is aided by the warm, bright illustrations of softly textured, rounded furry creatures and homey backgrounds.
