I loved reading this to first graders; the character talks about "first" times. Great writing and connection activity. Also vocabulary words in the book are great! ( )

Frankie learns that everyday bravery of trying new things for the very first time is what growing up is all about.

I really enjoyed this book because it mirrors many of my families adventures with young children. It is an adventure story about trying things for the first time. The first day of school, the first time riding a bike, the first time making new friends. The illustration of the classroom that Frankie enters for the first time is priceless. This book includes many multicultural themes referencing many different families structures in the story. This series of books starts with a story about parents adopting a little girl. This is a terrific story to share with young readers in the classroom when introducing concepts of preserving.

This book is adorable. A very inspirational book full of a lot of "firsts" and how it is important to keep trying when you first encounter a problem. ( )

Jamie Lee Curtis hit the nail on the head with everything a first grader is bound to experience when they enter school for their first time. It talks about twins, tying shoes, eating in the cafeteria, etc. It has illustrations that involve the reader. It was a wonderful book! ( )

The first time I rode a two-wheeler alone, I crashed and my mom filmed it on her iPhone. . . .

The tenth children's book by the #1 New York Times bestselling team of Jamie Lee Curtis and Laura Cornell celebrates the extraordinary, everyday bravery of trying new things for the very first time. Whether Frankie's learning to ride a bike, love her first dog, make new friends (her very first twins), or help out her dad, she discovers that trying new things is how she grows—and that being brave enough to do so is what growing up is all about.
