Franklin Goes to School

Good children's books fore-arm them for new events in their lives.

Franklin's first-day fears of school are allayed when Mr.Owl praises his art skills.

Brief Review

Franklin is nervous about his first day of school. Other kids seem to understand reading and numbers, but he doesn't. Mr. Owl makes Franklin comfortable by noticing his coloring, and helps him with reading. By day's end Franklin has worked with building blocks, the classroom store and made several paintings he wants to show his parents.   Franklin Goes to School offers a useful look at Franklin's first day at kindergarten, showing children what they can expect.
