Good Reads description:
Here is the story of a young boy who is about to enter first grade and doesn't know quite what to expect. Will his friends be there? Will he have to know how to read and spell? What if he can't understand anything his teacher says? Looks like a case of first grade jitters! Robert Quackenbush and Yan Nascimbene tell a reassuring story that is sure to chase away those jitters for any soon-to-be first grader.
Just because a child made it through kindergarten, doesn’t mean they are comfortable about moving on to first grade. The full-page illustrations highlight this common anxiety felt by many soon to be first graders. I especially liked how Aidan’s dog and teddy bear mirror his worries throughout the book. And like all good first day jitters type books, this one has an easy happy ending. This is a great gift for the new first grader in your life and a good addition to any collection on first day jitters.
Recommended for Kindergarten through 1st Grade.
