Publisher's Description

Anne and Lizzy Rockwell's delightful picture book series about Mrs. Madoff's class has explored some special occasions at school, including Career Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and Presidents' Day. Now the respected mother-daughter writer-illustrator team is taking on another BIG day in First Day of School.
 
Kids will understand the excitement and nervousness of the children in Mrs. Madoff’s class as they get ready for the first day of school after summer vacation. They’ve all changed a little. Nicholas has a grown-up new haircut. Jessica has learned how to make her own lunch. And Ethan has his very own house key!
 
As the kids get into their back-to-school rituals, they know one thing for sure: this year is sure to be great!

Editorial Reviews

Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:ST. PATRICK’S DAY:“It’s exactly the same scene that’s played out in elementary schools across the country every March, and as such it will be sweetly familiar to readers…it will be deservedly welcomed by teachers in many settings.”
Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:ST. PATRICK’S DAY:“Lizzy Rockwell’s clear, vivid spreads evoke an active learning environment. This welcome addition to the series clearly outlines the importance of this day in March on which everyone is Irish.”
Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:PRESIDENTS’ DAY:“An excellent introduction to the holiday for younger grades and a first purchase for most collections.”
Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:PRESIDENTS’ DAY:“The impressive collaboration of the Rockwell team, once again delivers a book perfect for use in the primary grades.”
Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:FATHER’S DAY: “Don’t limit this book to Father’s Day-it should be enjoyed year round.”
Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:MOTHER’S DAY:“A mother-daughter team adds to a winning streak of classroom books centering on young children’s preparations for important days with this celebration of mothers... This winsome, instructive book may focus on Mother’s Day, but it can be read anytime.”
