Book Review: If I Built a School

October 17, 2019

If I Built a School by Chris Van Dusen
From Miss Jennifer at Main Library

Chris Van Dusen has created another terrific tale in his newest "If I Built a ..." series.  If I Built a School, is a fun and imaginative story about a boy who dreams big as he designs his ideal school.  The main character, Jack, sparks your imagination with a tube to zoom you to your classroom, a stylus that writes in the air and even hover desks!

This book opens the door to creativity and ingenuity.  The rhyming text and colorful, detailed illustrations make this book an enjoyable read. You can use it to engage in both conversation and activities where children answer the ultimate question, "What would you put in YOUR school?"

Be sure to check out Van Dusen's other books,  If I Built a Car and If I Built a House.
