First Day Jitters

Submitted by Tammy, driver of the WoW van!
First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg. This would be a great book to use with children experiencing anxiety over starting school or facing any new situation. Mr. Hartwell finds Sarah Jane hiding under her covers in bed on the first day of school refusing to get up. He reminds Sarah of all the fun she will have and the new friends she'll meet on her first day. After much encouragement, Sarah eats and gets ready for her big day. Mr. Hartwell drops her off and she enters the school with the rest of the children. The principal walks Sarah down to the classroom where he introduces the children to their new teacher "Mrs. Sarah Jane Hartwell". The children will be surprised to learn that Sarah is an adult, and even grown ups get nervous about new situations!
