Why do we love this book?

Because the story follows a sequential pattern (counting 12 days of kindergarten), children will be engaged listening to the story and will want to know what will happen next. The pictures and settings mirror a real kindergarten classroom, and your child will relate to the characters as they display a variety of emotions– from being sad when saying goodbye to Mom and Dad to being nervous about the school bus and walking into the classroom, to finally being excited about all the fun things to do in Kindergarten.
