Description


It's the first day of school at Frederick Douglass Elementary and everyone's just a little bit nervous, especially the school itself. What will the children do once they come? Will they like the school? Will they be nice to him?

The school has a rough start, but as the day goes on, he soon recovers when he sees that he's not the only one going through first-day jitters.

Recipient of 7 starred reviews!

"Robinson (Last Stop on Market Street) gives the school just a hint of visual personification in his flattened, paint-and-collage artwork, as Rex (Moonday) deftly juggles well-placed jokes and keen insights into feeling comfortable in ones own skinor bricks, as the case may be."Publishers Weekly, starred

"Using his signature, simple style, Robinson alternates scenes of the building and its interiors with shots that show the boisterously diverse kids' first day.A unique point of view makes this school book stand out."Kirkus Reviews, starred

"Sure to become a staple for first days of school everywhere."Horn Book, starred

"This charming reversal of first-day-of-school nerves will delight little ones
and help put their own anxieties at bay."Booklist, starred

"
An essential purchase that is simultaneously funny, frank, and soothing. A perfect first day read-aloud." School Library Journal, starred

"A delightful, perspective-tweaking back-to-school picture book."Shelf Awareness, starred

"
Anthropomorphization of the whole building is a new and promising approach for school-shy youngsters, and itll make the already school-positive want to give their beloved building a hug."Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred

How to Use Your Gift Cards Online

Hello! If you have a Flying Pig gift card (the cute plastic one with the pig and clouds), here's how to use it online:

Select the books you'd like to order. During the checkout process, you'll see a menu of options. Click on the little black arrow next to Store Gift Card pane:

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**

If you received an Online Gift Code (NOT a physical card, but a string of numbers and letters emailed to you), please refer to your emailed gift to redeem those! They are applied instantly when you visit the website via the gift code email.
