Will I Have a Friend?

Will I Have a Friend?

by Miriam Cohen Illustrated by Lillian Hoban
Every child has a first day at school, and this is the story of Jim's. His day begins with a lot of worries and wonders about his first day. But even his father's gentle reassurance doesn't make Jim feel any better. The other children in kindergarten are scary strangers to him. He's sure that he'll never find a friend...until naptime, when he discovers someone who feels the way he does.
