Yo ho ho! It’s the first day of kindergarten.
With the build-up leading to the first day of school for kindergarten students, this book takes a look at the anxiety and somewhat strange look at traveling to school on a school bus, with a pirate captain and his first mate, Parrot. The author uses pirate language, adding to the fun of learning how to handle being and feeling safe on the school bus. The varied text font and comical illustrations turn a challenging time for young children through a humorous lens. The message to Pirates…ARRRGH!-Grown-Ups at the end of the book provides a realistic attitude on preparing young children for a new experience.
Ideal for a read-aloud for kindergarten or those anticipating starting a new school year on a school bus. Ages 5-8.
