This uplifting, diverse picture book, the first in a planned series of common childhood experiences, celebrates the first day of kindergarten—the first formal schooling for most children—and the many activities that are shared on this special day.
Starting a new school year brings a variety of emotions for children, especially if it’s their first time experiencing formal schooling. We’re Going to School presents a day in the life of several children from diverse backgrounds, who engage in many of the same activities on this special day—the sometimes chaotic preparation to get dressed, have breakfast, and leave the house on time; the experience of meeting new teachers and new friends, and learning new classroom rules; and the fun and satisfaction of completing a task correctly. Children will be reminded and reassured that even though new experiences can be scary sometimes, they soon become familiar occurrences, which paves the way for enjoyment. This is the first in a planned series of titles that explore common childhood experiences.
