ON THE FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARTEN is a new adaption of "The Twelve Days of Christmas." Using a similar rhyming pattern, the reader follows a little girl as she goes through her first twelve days of kindergarten. Though the rhyming feels a tad forced, each day brings a new and exciting day of kindergarten.

The story follows an unnamed character and slowly brings on a class full of children. Each child is allowed a different expression. They are ethnically diverse, and each kid has his or her own personality. Hughes's illustrations allow for some kid to participate, some shy, and some scared of the first few days of school. This range gives it an honest feel, which will speak to a variety of children and their parents.
The different activities like sports, art, reading and gym bring a social aspect to the book. It shows that kindergarten can be fun.

Perfect for younger readers getting ready to start their first days of school.
