In simple and reassuring terms, this entertaining book explores for young children aged approximately 3-6 what it is like to start school and how the reader might feel about it. Discussion boxes offer an adult opportunities to discuss the issues directly with their child audience. Charmingly clear illustrations give readers immediate access to complex situations and feelings and provide further stimulus for discussion. Notes for teachers and parents, plus suggested further resources, help adults to make the most of the learning opportunities inherent in the book.
Written by a trained psychotherapist, journalist and parent, and illustrated by a very experienced children's book artist, this is part of an acclaimed and successful series of picture-book non-fiction for Early Years.
