If I Built a School

Written and Illustrated by Chris Van Dusen

If Jack built a school, there would be hover desks and pop-up textbooks, skydiving wind tunnels and a trampoline basketball court in the gym, a robo-chef to serve lunch in the cafeteria, field trips to Mars, and a whole lot more. The inventive boy who described his ideal car and house in previous books is dreaming even bigger this time.

I read this book to my second grade classes and they loved it. They loved the ideas that Jack came up with, but they also had fun brainstorming ideas on what features they would add if they built the school. The pictures are very bright and detailed, the text is large and bold, and it’s a joy to read aloud with wonderful rhyming text.
