Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come!
(Viking Books for Young Readers, June 1, 1999)
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! Nancy Carlson is well known for books that explore the challenges of growing up-and Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come! is the perfect book to help children feel good about themselves and ready to take on kindergarten with confidence.
