Description

Featured in Scholastic Book Clubs!

Award-winning author Tony Johnston and illustrator Melissa Sweet create a joyful story about the first day of kindergarten!

"I'm off to kindergarten now.
I'd better take my bear.
He likes to sit beside me, so
I'll take a little chair. . . ."


So begins the long list of things Bill absolutely needs for his first day of school. Along with his pillow and some cookies, he also plans on bringing his sandbox, some digging moles, and a moving truck!

A touching story of first-day jitters and hopes, Tony Johnston's rhyming text is paired with Melissa Sweet's delightful illustrations.
