My First Day of School by Nancy Skarmeas


My First Day of School by Nancy Skarmeas

This title is suitable for ages 4 to 6 years. This picture book takes the intimidating prospect of starting school and transforms it into an appealing adventure. The more five-year-old Daniel hears about kindergarten, the more he wants nothing to do with it. His pre-school days are filled with swimming lessons, library time, and fun with Grandma, Mom, and his baby sister - just the way he likes it. As the big first day approaches, Daniel, full of jitters, meets the excitement of the adults around him with scepticism. Vivid, playful illustrations help propel the reader along as each of Daniel's fears is overcome. With good-natured humour and sympathy, this entertaining book allays this oh-so-common fear of change.
