When you wake up for school

you'll get dressed, really cool

with your sneakers and socks

and your lunch in a box . . .


Kindergarten's begun.

Big kids say that it's fun.

But is that really true?

Will it be fun . . . for you?


Celebrate all the familiar milestones and moments shared by every kid entering kindergarten in this charming second-person narrative. Whether it's early-morning jitters or becoming familiar with new classroom routines, this sweet and bouncy story will have expectant kindergarteners saying, "Kindergarten is cool!"

Two of my favorite five-year-olds were getting ready to start kindergarten when - oops! I realized I hadn’t done anything to help them celebrate. Oh, no! What could I do? I thought…and thought…and, at last, I wrote a story - for them and all new kindergartners, everywhere. I knew it was a good story when, after their first day of school, they both told me, "Wow! Kindergarten IS cool!”
