    It's Time for Preschool!

    by Esme Raji Codell and Sue Rama

    Can't wait! School's great! All the big kids go. I grew. School's new. Many things to know. Just what will new preschoolers and their parents encounter that first day of school? This friendly, energetic, and inviting picture book is the ideal introduction to the ins and outs of preschool. The best thing about it? School=Fun!

    Preschool is fun, friendly, safe, and supportive. Preschool can also be scary, mysterious, and bewildering. Esmé Raji Codell, a teacher, librarian, author, and literacy advocate, has written a welcoming and irresistible introduction to the preschool experience for new preschoolers and their caregivers. There is perhaps no better way to prepare a child for school than reading her books about school. It's Time for Preschool! illustrates the preschool experience from drop-off to pick-up, and also includes special events a preschooler will encounter throughout the year, such as a fire drill and field trip. Sue Ramá's colorful and warm illustrations are just as accessible as the text!

About This Book

There are two files on Sahara Jones. The one the school counselor keeps is evidence that she's a fifth-grader who needs special education. The other is the book Sahara is secretly writing, her Heart-Wrenching Life Story and Amazing Adventures. The latest chapter in her book unfolds when her mother insists that she be taken out of special ed. So Sahara is facing fifth grade in the regular classroom, again. But why even try to do the work, Sahara wonders, if everything just winds up in the counselor's file? Enter Miss Pointy, the new fifth-grade teacher. With her eggplant-colored lipstick, and strange subjects such as "Puzzling" and "Time Travel," she's like no other teacher Sahara has ever known. Through Miss Pointy's unusual teaching, storytelling, and quiet support, Sahara finds the courage to overcome her fears and prove which file shows her true self.
