Rufus Goes to School

Rufus Goes to School by Kim Griswell is a book out just in time for the beginning of a new school year.  Rufus is interested in going to school so he can learn to read.  Each time he goes to the office to see the principal about enrolling in school, the principal declines to do so because Rufus is a pig.   Rufus finally finds just the thing to convince the principal that he does belong at school.  This is a story about persistence and motivation that both children and adults will appreciate.  It would be great to share with children starting school for the first time.
