Jake Starts School by Michael Wright

Jake is so nervous on the first day of school that he ends up attaching himself to his parents and won’t let go. His parents have to spend the whole day with him, but Jake realizes that if he doesn’t let go of his parents he is not going to be able to play with the other kids, or paint, or make things out of clay, or seesaw or climb the jungle gym. At the end of the day he finally lets go and gets to help his teacher hold the book while she reads to the class. Kindergarten turns out to be a great year for Jake, too. My favorite part of the story, I must admit, is when he gets so nervous he passes gas. 🙂 Very cute story with an adorable rhyme.
