The First day of School is about two beat friends who are about to go to school for their very first day. Only, they don't have the same teachers... Can they still be friends? Do they even want to go to school anymore?

This would be a fun first say of school read to teach a students that school can be fun even if you don't know anyone in your class yet. pretty cute. Lots of good, rich vocab, sentence fluency, symmetry and repetition. Very fun read.

I liked this book because it teaches you that you can still be friends even if you have different interests and hobbies.

Good start of the year readaloud. Repetitive (of course, it's a starting chapter book) without being annoying about it.

Good for grades k-2
This would be a great book to calm nerves of any first day school worries. Although it doesn't exactly cover the nervous aspect, it shows what a great time each boy had on their first day of school, even without each other. I would recommend this book to any preschooler about to head to a bigger elementary school, and a beginning reader. Great morals and lessons, and easily relatable.

This is a great book for the first day of school. I know the first year my best friend wasn't in my class I was very upset. I feel this book could help students with the same problem.
