Mom! I’m ready to start kindergarten, are you? This book is told in the perspective of a 5 year old boy. He is so excited to start kindergarten and can’t wait to get out the door. Mom, on the other hand, is dragging her feet and worrying. But school is just the place where this “big boy” wants to be. He walks right up to the school and makes a new friend, and wouldn’t you know it Mom makes a new friend too. Suddenly they find the classroom and Mom is ready but the boy isn’t. He soon decides he is ready and has a wonderful day. The story ends with the 5 year old boy asking his worried mom if he can take the school bus tomorrow.
