The First Day of School

by Glenda

readytoreadHooray, hooray, the first day of school

The library’s quiet and barely full

Hooray, hooray, the first day of school

The children’s area is clean and the shelves are completely full

Hooray, hooray, the first day of school

No children’s programs today, and the café area is not even full

Hooray, hooray, the first day of school

No one’s looking for Margaret McNamara’s The First Day of School

Don’t say it, don’t say it

Hooray, hooray, the first day of school

Because

It is very lonesome when the kids are in school

And

I’m lonely, when do the kids get out of school?

–by an exhausted children’s librarian after a great, busy, fun-filled summer

Here are a few other first-day-of-school books:

Ham and Pickles: The First Day of School by Nicole Rubel

First Day of School: All About Shapes and Sizes by Kirsten Hall

Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come by Nancy Carlson

Wemberly Worried by Kevin Henkes
