The first day of school has never been so exciting as in this simple, subtle, warm and welcoming story of six frightened children finding connection at school.

All over town, children are waking up . . . choosing clothes . . . eating breakfast . . . getting ready for the first day of school!
But for six kids, the day is more scary than special -- it's cause for hiding under the covers rather than leaping out of bed. It's only after they arrive at school and discover the wonderful surprise waiting there that they know: It's going to be a HAPPY SCHOOL YEAR!
