This book is about a little girl who attend school for the very first time. She's nervous but extremely excited. On the way to school she walks with her older sisters. Once she gets to school she is so overwhelmed that she doesn't interact with any of the other students but instead she focuses on the tree. She ends up missing the bell, not knowing what to do she walks home and climbs underneath her bed. Her mom finds her and takes her to school and then the day goes on as if nothing happened.

A good book to read for students who may be having first day jitters.
Based on author's childhood experiences. Delightful and authentic.
What parent doesn't take their child to their first day of school?
