The King of Kindergarten
Illustrator: Vanessa Brantley-Newton
A confident little boy takes pride in his first day of kindergarten, by the Newbery Honor-winning author of Crown.
Starting kindergarten is a big milestone ― and the hero of this story is ready to make his mark! He's dressed himself, eaten a pile of pancakes, and can't wait to be part of a whole new kingdom of kids. The day will be jam-packed, but he's up to the challenge, taking new experiences in stride with his infectious enthusiasm. Afterward he can't wait to tell his proud parents all about his achievements ― and then wake up to start another day.
Newbery Honor-winning author Derrick Barnes's empowering story will give new kindergarteners a reassuring confidence boost, and Vanessa Brantley-Newton's illustrations exude joy.
