First Day of School

By Anne Rockwell

Illustrated by Lizzy Rockwell

"Excited and scared as he prepares for school, Nicholas sees his friends in the park and at the store, and as the kids remember last year's class with Mrs. Madoff, they hope they will be together again. The uncluttered, brightly colored pictures capture the children's nervousness as they anticipate what's ahead a well as their excitement as they prepare for their first day: Eveline's mother measures her for a new white dress; Jessica makes her own lunch and packs it in her new Comet Girl lunch box; Michiko has brand-new bouncy sneakers; and Evan is finally old enough to have his own house key.


On the first day of school, Nicholas gets his wish: he and his best-pal are indeed in the same class. A cheerful, reassuring offering that nicely covers the range of first-day jitters." - Booklist

From the popular series, set in Mrs. Madoff's classroom.
