All the apprehension about school "firsts" is playfully presented in these reassuring stories. In Mrs. Watson Wants Your Teeth, advice from a "knowledgeable" second grader has the first grade worry-wart convinced that her new teacher is really a 300-year old alien who steals baby teeth from her students. This is especially worrisome since she has a secret: her first tooth is loose! A witty, and spot-on depiction of first-day-of-school jitters, this clever take on losing a tooth will reassure as it amuses both children, their parents and their teachers! In Countdown to Kindergarten, a five-year-old has 10 days until she starts kindergarten, and she's in trouble: she doesn't know how to tie her shoes. Certain that everyone in kindergarten must know how to tie their shoes - it's the rule! - she tries her best to learn. As the fateful day approaches, she still can't do it - what will she do? Told with wit and verve, this depiction of a child's anxiety is both empathetic and enjoyable. A Live Oak Media audio production.
