From award-winning author Tony Johnston and David Walker comes the perfect book for first time First Graders
Kindergarten? Done
"I'm zooming off to first grade now.
I need about five friends
to play good games like hide-and-sneak
and where-the-sidewalk-ends."
Tony Johnston's playful stanzas meet with David Walker's joyful art to create a remarkable foray into first grade--with all its peaks and valleys. There's reading and counting, sure, but also show-and-tell, singing, crafts, and of course, recess
Watch out everyone, 'cause first grade, here I come.
