book for child afraid of kindergarten, First Day Jitters

First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg


Sarah Jane's first day at a new school looms on the calendar, and when it finally arrives, all she wants to do is hide under the covers. "I don't know anybody, and it will be hard and... I just hate it, that's all." All the reasons to be anxious build and build before the author finally reveals that (surprise!) Sarah Jane is a teacher, not a student — proving that even adults get first-day jitters when they face something new. Check out these other back-to-school books to get kids excited!
