Today is the first day of Kindergarten! Eighteen sweet boys and girls are going to enter this classroom for a year of learning and growing together. I'm sure there might be tears for a few. But I am ready. I want them to know that they are special and this is a special place where we will spend a lot of time this year. Today we will read "The Kissing Hand" by Audrey Penn. This is a perfect "first day of school" story. Hopefully, it will help the boys and girls know that they are loved both at school and at home.
If you are a parent and you are reading this, don't forget to ask your child to tell you all about this wonderful story! You may even want to pull up the video of Audrey Penn reading the story on Barnes and Noble's site--just click the picture below for the link or click here.
