The first day of school means new shoes, fresh crayons, and a fancy lunch box. It also means leaving Mom and Dad behind, a notion that's likely to rattle even the most eager new student--and this little girl is no exception. Her classroom seems overwhelming, and the older kids are awfully big. But she soon realizes that a friendly teacher and some new pals can help even the most reticent student move past the jitters and into the fun!
Perfect for any child starting school, Dandi Daley Mackall's simple rhyming text and Tiphanie Beeke's cheerful illustrations will reassure children--and parents--who are nervous about a first day.

PreS-K. Two tiny black dots and a rosebud-shaped squiggle turn a pink daub of paint into a child's happy face; rectangles of different colors become a tower of blocks; unrestricted lines, straight and curved, thick and thin, comprise a playground slide. Using spot art and full-page watercolors in a riot of color, a perfusion of shapes, and simple patterns, Beeke shows children enjoying all the activities they might experience at preschool or kindergarten. A childlike lilt adds a youthful sensibility to a little girl's description of her first day--from preparations ("Pencils sharp, crayons stacked, / ruler, scissors, paper packed) and the "swallow hard" anxiety of leaving home and facing strangers to the wiggling, painting, sliding, and storytelling that fill out a happy, full day. A cheerful, encouraging preview that realistically acknowledges both the feelings and the fun. Stephanie Zvirin
