This book shows that the big step into school can be a challenge for both the student and the parent. The illustrations help to communicate the mood of the characters.

this is a book about a little boy and how excited he is to start his first day of kindergarten.
  Amy-Young | Nov 19, 2015 |
This is a story about a boy who is very excited for his first day of school, but his mom is the nervous one. She is tentative about allowing him to go to school, and the illustrations show that by the color of her skin and outfits. The boy is very chipper all the way until he arrives at school when he sees his teacher, he turns nervous and his mother is feeling better. Once he goes back for another day, the two are feeling better about school together and know that it will be a good thing for him to attend. These illustrations show a lot of emotion in them. The colors of the characters throughout the story give evidence of who is feeling what emotion. It is a good teaching lesson about emotions, and how maybe colors can tell how someone is feeling on a certain day. A lesson to be learned from this story is that anyone can be brave to do something new. Allowing students to talk about when they were brave will give them a sense of accomplishment, and maybe allow them to be brave when there is a chance they may need to be. ( )

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.
