All summer Oliver and his dad played together, laughed together, sang together, and read together.
Now it's time for Oliver to start school!
On the first day, Oliver's dad isn't quite ready. . . . Suddenly he feels nervous. His tummy hurts, and he would rather stay home.
But Oliver isn't convinced. What if the first day is really fun? What if it's the start of an exciting year?
In this charming story of first-day jitters, acclaimed author and illustrator Mike Wohnoutka perfectly captures the mixed emotions felt by kids and their parents when big changes are afoot.
