All the apprehension about school firsts is playfully presented in these reassuring stories.

In Mrs. Watson Wants Your Teeth, advice from a knowledgeable second grader has the first grade worry-wart convinced that her new teacher is really a 300-year old alien who steals baby teeth from her students. This is especially worrisome since she has a secret: her first tooth is loose! A witty, and spot-on depiction of first-day-of-school jitters, this clever take on losing a tooth will reassure as it amuses both children, their parents and their teachers!

In Countdown to Kindergaten, a five-year-old has 10 days until she starts kindergarten, and she's in trouble: she doesn't know how to tie her shoes. Certain that everyone in kindergarten must know how to tie their shoes - it's the rule! - she tries her best to learn. As the fateful day approaches, she still can't do it - what will she do? Told with wit and verve, this depiction of a child's anxiety is both empathetic and enjoyable. Download and start listening now!

    " I think it may be too old for Noah at this point. It had more of a comic book layout and wasn't too easy to read aloud and follow the pictures. "
