Children's LiteratureWith gentle humor, Becky Edwards strikes a reassuring tone in My First Day at Nursery School. Most little ones will probably empathize with the first-person narrator, who is a bit wary of this new experience. But the amazing playhouse, sparkly glue, shiny paper and fun friends change the child's refrain of "I want my mommy" to "I want to stay at nursery school" by the last page. The book ends happily when the excited student realizes she can return the very next day. Anthony Flintoff's bright illustrations portray a multicultural classroom busy with art activities, music and playtime—and can help your preschooler anticipate what's to come. 2004 (orig. 2002), Bloomsbury, and Ages 2 to 5.
