Has anyone at your house NOT started school yet? Is anyone worried about the first day of school? Take the pressure off.
IS YOUR BUFFALO READY FOR KINDERGARTEN? By Audrey Vernick, illustrated by Daniel Jennewein, Balzer + Bray, Harper Collins 2010
For those parents concerned about having their children ready for school, here’s a quick thought. It could be even more daunting. What if you had to get your buffalo ready for school instead? What if your buffalo is shy and worried that he may be the only one with horns? The best part of kindergarten is that everyone’s special in his own way.
This book is supposed to be for 4 and 5 year olds, but it will come as quite a relief to first time parents. Concentrate most on what is special, not what is different.
Easy, there, dear first time parent. You’ll make it through the first day. If a buffalo can, so can you.
P.S. Sage kindergartners will find this book chuckle-worthy.
