Anne and Lizzy Rockwell's delightful picture book series about Mrs. Madoff's class has explored some special occasions at school, including Career Day, St. Patrick's Day, and Presidents' Day. Now the respected mother-daughter writer-illustrator team is taking on another BIG day in First Day of School.

Kids will understand the excitement and nervousness of the children in Mrs. Madoff's class as they get ready for the first day of school after summer vacation. They've all changed a little. Nicholas has a grown-up new haircut. Jessica has learned how to make her own lunch. And Ethan has his very own house key!

As the kids get into their back-to-school rituals, they know one thing for sure: this year is sure to be great!
