But will this little boy find the courage to face the first day of school alone? With so much to do, like painting, dressing up, storytime, and making new friends, he just might! And Bear? He'll always be waiting at the end of the day, with a great big hug! A delightfully funny story that will reassure with every child anxious about starting a new school or nursery.
