Book by Laurence Anholt
Billy is excited to be starting at a new school, but he feels funny inside, too. What if he gets lost, can’t learn to tie his new shoes, or doesn’t make any friends? He wonders if he’s like the little sparrow in the yard that can’t quite fly by itself yet. Then one morning, the bird is ready to go into the big world — and so is Billy!Laurence Anholt’s text gently acknowledges the fear of “leaving the nest, ” while Catherine Anholt’s detailed and charming illustrations provide a reassuring look at the first day of school.
