Silly old school! Who wants to go there? Beth certainly doesn’t. It’s much more fun to stay home with her toys and books and mom and Aunt Bea. She doesn’t want to go for story time or painting or singing or snacks or new friends or anything else. No, school doesn’t seem like much fun at all . . . or does it? Gentle humor and lively prose, perfect for even very young readers, quell a child's natural anxieties about the first day of school.
