Dee and Deb are twins and are going to kindergarten. They worry about meeting new friends. The first day of kindergarten, or any grade, or the first day at a new school can cause anxiety in any child. Donna McDine’s story can ease that anxiety for a young child when they realize that Dee and Deb made friends and had a good time doing many new and fun things. The story is realistic and features adorable pictures by Jack Foster, an award-winning illustrator. If you have a young child in your life who will be entering Kindergarten (or a new school), I highly recommend you read this book together.

This is such a cute short story. Twin sisters Dee and Deb are about to embark on their first day at 'kindergarten/nursery'. They have always done everything together so when they arrive and are separated it could be a challenge. But they both happily skip into their respective classrooms and listen to the teacher. One of the tasks is to find a buddy to do the fun things with .. Dee is a little overwhelmed until she realises there is another little girl who is also feeling lonely and strange. They quickly find they can have fun playing and doing lots of interesting things together and the day passes very quickly. Absolutely charming, ideal for parents, kids, schools, libraries .. this can be enjoyed by all. It proves that even though things can be daunting where change is concerned there is always a solution. Short enough to read many times, the illustrations are delightful. Thanks to the author and Pump Up Your Book Tours for the opportunity to read this in exchange for my honest opinion.

Donna McDine has written a charming picture book about twin sisters who do everything together, crib mates to playmates! Until kindergarten begins that is. Each sister is assigned a different classroom. But how will they cope if they aren’t together? The teacher told them to find a new buddy but neither girl knew how they could ever replace their twin. This story was delightful and one that tackles a problem most twins go through at some stage of their life. The illustrator, Jack Foster did a fantastic job of bringing the authors story to life with colorful and beautiful illustrations that any child or adult would enjoy. I would recommend this picture book not only to anyone who has twins but also to a child who has to change schools. They need to realize that making new friends is not as hard as they think and it will always be an important part of their lives.

A must read for children preparing for the beginning of their school career! Dee and Deb is an endearing story to which all children can relate, whether or not they are a twin, as they take the big step to full time student. Dee and Deb are twin sisters who are about to be separated for the first time ever on their first day of Kindergarten. Donna McDine's voice paints a realistic picture of first day jitters and creates characters and a school experience which are easily relatable for kids. Ms. McDine does an excellent job of touching on what is most important to kids this age--a friend to play with in school and the nerves that go with walking into a classroom of unfamiliar faces not knowing anyone, especially without the sister-friend who has been by your side until now. Ms. McDine's story will reassure kids as they face the start of school and leave them more excited than nervous for their first big day of Kindergarten. Mr. Foster's colorful and detailed illustrations really bring the story to life and draw the reader fully into Dee and Deb's adventure on their first day of school.
