Dad’s First Day

Dad's First Day

Today is the beginning of kindergarten for the children of several friends.  Dad’s First Day by Mike Wohnoutka provides a twist on first day jitters.  It’s the parent, not the child whose tummy hurts.

Oliver’s dad doesn’t want to take him to school; so he hides all over the house and yard.  Goodbye is hard for Oliver’s dad, the teacher has to carry him outside screaming.  At one point, he screams, “I’m not ready for school!”  Ready or not it’s here.  I hope my friends have a not too teary morning; and this dreary, rainy day goes well for all our kindergarten friends and their teachers.
