What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A relatable, funny back-to-school tale for rising first graders and young children facing new experiences.★ “Rodman handles the turmoil of school transitions with realism and humor. A good jumping-off book for discussions about differences and change.” ―Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEWIt’s the first day of school, and Hayley is excited. Things are different now. She’s a first grader! Hayley quickly finds out that first grade is different from kindergarten, but in all the wrong ways. The classroom isn’t as bright and colorful. Ms. Gray doesn’t seem to smile as much as her kindergarten teacher did, and there isn’t enough time to play outside. Finally, Hayley has had enough. “First grade stinks!” she shouts. And fortunately, her compassionate teacher completely understands.Young readers will immediately empathize with Hayley as she struggles–amid unmet expectations, new experiences, and disappointment–to find enthusiasm for the new school year.Awards: Best Children’s Books of the Year ―Bank Street College of EducationBattle of the Books (Grades K-2) ―Alaska Association of School LibrariansKansas State Reading Circle Recommended Reading List (Primary) ―Kansas National Education Association
