Synopsis: It's the first day of kindergarten, and Henry is raring to go. First he gets dressed and eats a good breakfast. Then he and mom are off to school. Henry knows he's going to have a busy day: there will be stories to hear, letters and numbers to learn, songs to sing, and friends to make. But when Henry gets to school, it looks scary and for a moment he's not sure he's ready for kindergarten. What Henry soon discovers, though, is that he's been ready all along, and that the only thing he's not ready for is how much fun kindergarten is going to be!

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make a big button, and draw a picture of your first day of school, or your favorite things to do at school.
•  Make a name bookmark writing out the letters in your name.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
