It's the first day of kindergarten, is everyone ready? This humorous and beautifully illustrated book conveys the feelings of both the child and the mother on the first day of kindergarten. The illustrations are beautiful and add emotional depth to the story.

Is a great story about mom being nervous about her child's first day of kindergarten. She is more worried than her child and he has to calm her down and tell her it will be okay. I love this role reverse because this is actually the case most of the time with the parent be more worried than child. So I think it will be fun for kids to read and understand the parents point of view on their kids growing up.

Watch how this brave little boy gets ready for his first day of kindergarten! Before school starts, he must help his mom see that he is ready for kindergarten, and that she can be excited for him instead of worried.

In the beginning, mom appears small and gray, as she worries and wonders about her son's first day of school. Her son appears large, rosy, happy and optimistic, offering a solution to every problem his mom presents. As her son gets her to school, another mom reaches out, and she begins to "grow" and become more colorful.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374350043, Hardcover)

It's a child's first day of kindergarten, but who is worried about all the new people and the different things he'll meet--the child? No! The mother. In a refreshing reversal of roles, the child takes it upon himself to comfort and reassure his mother that everything will be fine, she'll get used to him going to big-kid school, and yes, he is ready for the first day of kindergarten. Utterly charming in its simplicity, Yum playfully uses size and color to reveal emotions of this milestone beginning.
