The first days in kindergarten are always a bit of a challenge for parents and children. Most children are very much looking forward to it, but they are also anxious because they don’t know what to expect or because they have never been without Mom and Dad for this long. This rhymed story offers great opportunities for conversations and empathetically and age-appropriately shows the little ones what a day in kindergarten can look like, alleviating children’s fears and perfectly preparing them for their first visit to daycare or kindergarten.
