It is Bernard's first day in preschool. Mama, Papa, and Grandma show him the toys and blocks and paints. Bernard isn't interested in preschool. "Time to go home!" he says. But preschool seems like a lot of fun to Bernard's family. Papa is building with the blocks. Mama is painting pictures. And Grandma is having a tea party with the dollies. Standing alone in the middle of the room is Bernard, whose heart is set on going home--until he makes a friend. This bright and happy book from Joan Elizabeth Goodman and Dominic Catalano is perfect for young children with mixed feelings about preschool. They will identify with Bernard, who discovers that preschool is really a wonderful place, especially when you make new friends.
