This is an excellent book to read to your child as they get ready to start Kindergarten. This book is about a little boy named Dexter who, like most young children of that age, is nervous about starting Kindergarten. Throughout the book he verbalizes his fears, with his sister assuring him that there is no need to worry. I think this is a good book because young children will see not only does Dexter have the same fears they do, but that there really is no need to worry because there are teachers and other adults to help them out. Dexter does something that is common among young children; he say he is not scared but his stuffed dog is. Like most children, he wants to appear brave when he really is nervous. This is an important thing to notice among kids and to remind them that there is no reason to worry. At the end of the book, Dexter is not nervous but excited to go to Kindergarten. As a teacher, I would read this book on the first day of Kindergarten, showing with words and the vibrant illustrations that children will overcome their fears and enjoy and look forward to going to school.
