Going to school was hard for Manny Moose! HE didn’t like not knowing who the teacher would be, or who the other kids would be. He didn’t like not knowing what the snack would be, or what was coming next! But now he’s had a chance to visit his classroom and see the big schedule his teacher has on the wall. The teachers helped him when he was worried about snack, and when he missed his family. He even found out his best friend ALSO likes trains and trucks! Within the pages of this book, Manny shares why going to school was hard at first and how, with some help from his mom and his teachers, going to school is EASY NOW!
