The husband-and-wife team that created I Got the Rhythm (2014) and I Got the Christmas Spirit (2018) return with another adorable installment in their picture-book series. Starring the same apple-cheeked African American girl, her hair drawn in her signature poofs, this story follows her through her first day of school after summer break, starting with brushing her teeth and getting dressed. The double-page spreads are filled with gorgeous, lifelike illustrations—created with colorful oil paints on canvas—that burst with the girl's enthusiasm and movements. Each spread features a simple sentence (e.g., "I slip on the spirit in my shiny new shoes") with an accompanying sound effect ("STOMP, STOMP!") that makes reading aloud especially fun. Young children will relate to the girl's anxieties and excitement over for familiar school experiences as she goes through the day, passing her infectious, upbeat spirit to classmates in the process. This joyful offering will be a happy addition to any shelf of back-to-school stories or books dealing with first-day jitters. Preschool-Grade 1. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

The vivacious African American protagonist from I Got the Rhythm and I Got the ChristmasSpirit returns in this ebullient follow-up, embarking on the first day of school with optimism and oomph. She discovers—and exudes—spirit at every turn, beginning at home ("I slip on the spirit in my shiny new shoes. STOMP, STOMP!" writes Schofield-Morrison) and continuing in the classroom ("We sing the spirit loud and clear. ABC, 123!") and on the playground, where she finds a ball ("I kick the spirit high up in the air. KA-POW!"). At day's end, she encounters a quieter and deeper spirit when she climbs off the school bus and into her mother's open arms: "I feel the spirit in a big ol' hug. SQUISH, SQUEEZE!" The electric hues, constant motion, and winning smiles that fill Morrison's oil paintings enhance the boundless vitality of this sensory celebration of school. Ages 3–6. (July)
