Alice Ann Gets Ready for School by Cynthia Jabar

Alice Ann has a lot to do to get ready for her first day of school. She finds the perfect shoes and the perfect lunchbox and the perfect notebooks in her favorite colors. Alice Ann is up and at ’em on the first day…she eats her breakfast, her sister fixes her hair and then Alice Ann lets her younger brother help her get her backpack packed while her dad makes her lunch. Pictures are taken and then dad dad yells “BUS!” and Alice Ann is off and running. I love this book because not only does it tell the story of Alice Ann getting ready for school, but it also shows the love that these family members have for each other in how they help each other out, reassure each other and tell stories of the days when they were in school.
