    Maisy Goes to Preschool
    Written and illustrated by Lucy Cousins

Starting school for the first time, starting a new school after a move or educational advancement, or just starting a new grade can be nerve-racking, scary, and exciting. One of the best ways to help your child feel comfortable with this new transition is to read about it. They'll sympathize with how these characters feel and learn through their experiences that starting up school isn't as scary as it sounds, it's actually very fun and full of wonderful opportunities.
