I love this book! I heard it for the first time during the first week of school at my student teaching placement. Like the rest of the class, I thought that it was a student that had the first day jitters! As you read toward the ending of the books, it's actually the teacher that has first day jitters! This book shows that it's not just students that have first day jitters, but teachers also get nervous! ( )

Personal Reflection - I start my first day of school with this book. Actually at my school. all the first grade teachers read this book to their students. Most students are able to grasp the idea that teachers get nervous on the first day of school too. It's a great book to teach about the fear of going to a new school and sympathize with Sarah's feelings and discover the surprise ending. ( )
