Deb and Dee are twin sisters who are always together….until the first day of Kindergarten. Dee goes one way and Deb the other. Suddenly on her own, Dee wonders what she will do. She soon discovers her classmates have the same jitters she does.
Deb and Dee Off They Go – Kindergarten First Day Jitters is a story that enables young children to realize all first day kindergarten students suffer from the same fears they do. It’s a delightful story of friendship and belonging somewhere outside of home. It helps open up children to the idea they are part of a larger community. Award-winning author Donna M. McDine knows the issues children face and this latest book is even more proof of how in tune with young people she is.
Jack Foster provides the artwork for this adorable book. His use of color and the wide, expressive eyes of his characters allow readers to easily identify his illustrations. He captures so many emotions with his characters’ eyes.
I’m hoping this is a start of a new series of Dee and Deb books. Would love to follow more of their adventures.
