First grade for children ages 5 to 6 it's the big time! After all, it's a real honest to goodness grade. In verses that are both funny and full of heart, D.J. Steinberg's "First Grade, Here I Come!" celebrates big and small moments, ones that all young "scholars" will relate to including baby teeth that won't fall out, choosing the perfect library book, celebrating Pajama Day, and wrangling with the mysteries of spelling. From the first day of school to the last, this engaging anthology is essential reading for all soon-to-be first graders. Charmingly illustrated throughout by Tracy Bishop, "First Grade, Here I Come!" is especially recommended for family, preschool, elementary school, and community library collections. It should be noted for the parents of preschool children that "First Grade, Here I Come!" is also available in a paperback edition (9780448489209, $3.37) and in a Kindle format ($3.99).
