A wonderful book well worth the money.
A wonderful children's story about starting school (as the title indicates) that I was given when I began my schooling way back in 1992, and one that I am passing down to my godson as he begins his schooling. I cannot recommend this book enough to parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and godparents of any child starting school.
