Ambar Dorado is excited about starting second grade, but she is a little nervous too. There is a new teacher this year. The old second grade teacher was really nice and used to smile at her in the hall. What if the new one isn't as nice? What if she doesn't like Ambar? As she sets off with her new bear backpack, Ambar decides she's ready for whatever happens. And second grade better be ready for Ambar Dorado!
