Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'Twas the night before kindergarten, and as they prepared,
kids were excited,
and a little bit scared.

It's the first day of school! Join the kids as they prepare for kindergarten, packing school supplies, posing for pictures, and the hardest part of all-saying goodbye to Mom and Dad. But maybe it won't be so hard once they discover just how much fun kindergarten really is! Colorful illustrations illuminate this uplifting takeoff on the classic Clement C. Moore Christmas poem.

Colorful illustrations illuminate this uplifting takeoff on the classic Clement C. Moore Christmas poem as excited kids prepare for the first day of kindergarten.

Synopsis:

Sonya Sones, author of YA novel What My Mother Doesn't Know, has written a nifty, witty take-off of The Night Before Christmas with her daughter Ava Tramer, a recent Harvard grad. This small-format jacketed hardcover takes a look back at all the stops on the route to college--touring campuses, prepping for SATs, writing the dreaded essay, getting the thumbs-up-or-down news, and finally, at long last, packing and setting off for the next chapter. A perfect gift for the college bound.
