School Is Wherever I Am (Hardcover)
From Ellie Peterson, the author-illustrator of How to Hug A Pufferfish comes a timely new picture book about learning, exploration, and the ever-expanding definition of school.
Is school only one place?
Are there other classrooms?
In this charming, thoughtful picture book, author-illustrator Ellie Peterson explores learning, adventure, and the thousands of the things you can discover outside of a classroom—about the world, about your family, about yourself. Because school is truly wherever you are.
