So the kids may love to read… but what would it take for them to love school?

“Joy and enthusiasm leap from the pages as a boy describes, in spirited rhyming text, how he would build the school of his dreams. An ode to imagination.” – Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor

In this exuberant companion to If I Built a Car, a boy fantasizes about his dream school–from classroom to cafeteria to library to playground. There is so much to learn about If I Built a School, with the potential for imagination and creation for every child.

What would they be able to learn If I Built a School of their own? It’s hard to tell, but at least they can read about the chance!

My school will amaze you. My school will astound.
By far the most fabulous school to be found!
Perfectly planned and impeccably clean.
On a scale, 1 to 10, it’s more like 15!
And learning is fun in a place that’s fun, too.

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.
