Gram helps Sam get ready for the big day!

Fast-paced and fun, with vivid, cheery illustrations, this book takes the child reader hour-by-hour through a typical first day at school—so a child will know just what to expect on their very own big day—and also look forward to all the fun things that happen at school.

Written by a national expert in communications and human relations, it also has two special sections: "Things to Do," a list of practical, simple things you can do to help a child prepare for school, and "Things to Talk About," a list of questions to get the child thinking and talking about his or her feelings.

About the Author
Dr. Dianne Blomberg is a nationally recognized expert in relationship communication and a professor of human communication research in Denver. Her greatest joy, she finds, is sitting on the "story couch" in her living room with her grandchildren, inventing tales about imaginary places and magical adventures.
