I love quality books that teach children about every day life. Multi-award-winning author, Donna M. McDine has done a great job with her newest release, Dee and Deb Off They Go : Kindergarten First Day Jitters.
Dee and Deb are not alone when it comes to feeling overwhelmed when separating from a sibling who is your best friend and playmate. This charming story will help young children understand that going off to school can be a fun experience. Dee comes to realize she can make friends and all is well even without her sister Deb.
This book is a must read in all kindergarten classrooms. The teacher can use the book to help defuse anxiety about being away from home and siblings for the first time.
Jack Foster’s lovely illustrations complement the story, helping to bring the characters to life for the reader.
