    Disappointing

    I felt this book raised more fears about starting kindergarten than it did to reassure a child. Even for a four year old, the premise was somewhat ridiculous. What I found disturbing was the underlying theme throughout nine tenths of the book that not being able to perform a task, in this instance tying one's shoes, is punishable and that teachers will offer no help. I think the author's idea was to dispel the fears that children might have due to stories by older children about school but I felt it had the opposite effect for a child who may not have heard such tales.

    A wonderful read!

    My four year old is on his way to kindergarten and he loves this book. He cracks up at the turn of every page. I would recommend this book to any child entering kindergarten.

    A preschool favorite!!!

    This book is a favorite amongst my preschoolers. I can't begin to tell you how many times this book is requested by my students. With a classroom of children who are facing the natural fears of the transition to Kindergarten, this book enlightens them and lets them know that they are not the only ones afraid.

    A Very Fun Book For YOU and YOUR kids!

    School is approaching and kids are getting nervous? Who will be my teacher? Who will I sit next to? Will I be able to bring my stuffed animal? This book deals with these questions and a lot more and does so with a great deal of humor. The illustrations are wonderful and the book is well written. I couldn¿t recommend a better book for kids about to go back to school. Buy it, your kids will love it. And if you¿re looking for other titles for your kids or teenagers don¿t miss: The Little Prince (Saint Exupery); The Butterfly (Jay Singh) and; (for you!) The Alchemist (Coelho).

    Laugh out loud

    I can't say enough about this wonderful new book. It is a laugh out loud book about a little girl's who has concerns about going to kindergarten for the first time. Prompted by info she got from an upper classman (a first grader!) that tying one's shoes is manadatory in kindergarten, this little girl (who doesn't know how to tie her shoes) is in a tizzy. With her trusty(and humorous in his own right) cat by her side, she comes up with one idea after another to avoid the inevitable. This is a great read for kids but adults will love it, too!
