I bought this little book after searching high street book stores for some help with a problem my little girl had developed. After a long and happy Christmas Holiday she went back to school on the first day of the new term and suddenly refused, point blank, to go in to her class. She became very distressed and this was completely out of the blue and out of character. It transpired, after gentle interrogation that it was related to a 'minor' telling off she and two others had receieved and she now had an unreasonable fear of her head mistress. All other books I looked at were targeted at pre-school children starting school for the first time. This book addresses the emotions she was experiencing and has a fabulous twist at the end which 'humanizes' (if that's a word) the teacher too. Fingers crossed, the situation has improved greatly another book that may also have contributed to this improvement is 'Llama Llama misses Mamma'.
I love this book! I had to teach an RE topic on Beginnings, the first lesson of which wanted to discuss children's own experience of new beginnings. I was trying to find a book/story to read them about a child's first day ay school. This one is perfect, with a man trying desperately to coax Sarah-Jane out of bed and out of the house to go to her new school. Sarah-Jane is very reluctant - "What if no one likes me, what if I don't like the new school, etc etc. \The great twist at the end of the story is that Sarah-Jane is the teacher! My class loved this and asked me lots of questions about how I felt on my first day at their school.
A lovely book that I bought for my class. A nice story for the beginning of term with a lovely twist at the end, especially as it was my first day at school too! The book came quickly as it was shipped from america and was great quality.
Bought this for grand starting kindergarten in the fall. I read through it. Pictures and storey are good. Grand is very shy so don’t know if message is good or scary to know teacher is scared too (spoiler alert).
