The first day of school is here, and Sofia is so excited that she can finally go, like her big sister! Tom, on the other hand, is worried he'll get lost in such a big school, and how will he make new friends? The first day of school is important to every child, and they'll enjoy reading about how Tom and Sofia navigate the fun and the fears of the start of a new school year.
The first day of school can be nerve-racking, but Henriette Barkow’s book about Tom and Sofia proves to children that there is no reason to worry. After shopping for school supplies, the two new students head off to make new friends, play new games, and experience a completely new environment. The book, which is available in 26 different languages, is perfect for a child who is getting ready for his or her own first day of school.
