First Day Jitters

First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg is a great book about the first day at a new school. I would recommend everyone read this book, especially teachers. The story is of Sarah, who is anxious about her first day of school. Although some people think reading picture books is only for young children, I would say this one is really for any one of school age...maybe even up to middle school. I read it to my niece and nephews last weekend and hope to read it to some students the first day of school.

My most recent first day of school experience: in Mongolia, my students showed up wearing suits.

I read this book to my class and tutoring students on the first day of school. We all love it! Your blog reminded me that I want to buy it for my daughter Sarah, since she is a new teacher.
