In a cumulative text that echoes "The 12 Days of Christmas," an enthusiastic child chronicles the high points of starting a new school year in a first grade classroom. The adventure begins as the brown-skinned narrator, along with a multi-ethnic procession of children, wave goodbye to their parents and cheerfully make their way to their new desks. ("On the first day of first grade/ I had fun right away/ laughing and learning all day!") By day three, "choosing books to read" makes the growing list of enjoyable class activities, followed by throwing a ball and building with clay. On day 12, a lively show-and-tell session, which includes "showing my pet bunny," marks an exciting finale to the first few weeks of school. Artwork by Jennings (Feelings) features a steady stream of cheery faces and colorful classroom tools sure to prove inviting to prospective students. Ages 4–8. (June)
