First Day of School by Anne Rockwell
It is the day BEFORE the first day of school and time for haircuts, backpack buying as well as other school supplies, packing lunches, picking out outfits, and of course, new shoe buying in preparation for the first day of school. The kids reminisce about last year's first day of school to calm nerves. As in most of Anne Rockwell's books, this book is very simple and easy for younger kids to understand. Great look at the steps involved, as well as the feelings that many kids feel, and yes, teachers too, prior to that first day. I am sure this book will be read in many classrooms this year!
