Let the countdown to kindergarten begin! This engaging picture book captures a child’s excitement as the big day nears. Just 10 more sleeps till school starts! A young child happily anticipates the arrival of the first day of kindergarten—the new clothes he’ll wear, the lunch he’ll pack, the bus he’ll ride, the friends he’ll make, and the fun things he’ll do in class. Reassuring and joyful, with rhyme kids will love to read aloud, it’s the perfect book to welcome in the school year.
