On the morning of the first day of school, twenty new kindergarten students begin the day in different ways. Some wake up quickly; others try to sleep in. Some are nervous; some are happy … and one is “sure he won’t survive” the day. Some of the students get dressed in jeans; others pull on dresses. Some wear mismatched socks.
Ten children have “bed head” (and of those ten, nine use their combs and one uses a brush, but to no avail).
Some of the students eat toast for breakfast… others, pancakes. Some drink juice; others have a glass of milk.
The students arrive at the school in various ways too: by school bus, by foot or by car. Once there, some are still nervous. Others are excited and have no worries at all.
No two children have begun their morning in exactly the same way, but now that they are all in their new kindergarten room, there IS something which is the same for each of them. What is it?
The thing that is identical is that each student is equally welcome in their new kindergarten classroom!
This reassuring, wonderfully-illustrated picture book, which will help to calm first-day jitters, is careful to portray the diverse ethnicities, skin colors, hairstyles, personalities and behaviors of the new students.
** Recommended for ages 3 to 7 years of age.
