I guess he was picking it up even if he wasn't snuggled in my a [...]

Most of the kids are ready and happy to go except one little boy how is nervous and doesn't want to join in.

    11. In the format of The Night Before Christmas, a cute read to get kids psyched for the first day of school. I loved the excitement that it built. I don't know if the kid not being thrilled with being there added anything to the story, with the exception of the sharing. It felt almost as a distraction to me and could cause some anxiety in kids who have it read to them. I'd still read it to my grandmunchkins though and just process through any anxiety that they might be having.

A great teaching tool for kids who are going to preschool for the first time.
