The Lovereading4Kids comment

First day nerves at school are handled brilliantly here so that no child heading off on his or her first day will feel anything other than total confidence in themselves and come home at the end of the day very happy. Green Bananas make reading fun.


Jungle School by Elizabeth, Davison, Roz Laird

It's Jani's first day at school and she's nervous. Will the other monkeys be friendly? Will they all stare at her? Jani is in a wheelchair, and this makes her different. But, thanks to her sense of cheekiness, she makes friends and has a very nice first day at school indeed. This book stars a monkey with a sense of fun.
