Camille's lovely post at BookMoot made me think of a big transition that's just around the metaphorical corner at our house. That's right, kindergarten. My youngest is headed off in a week and he's nervous.

One of my favorite books about kindergarten is Rosemary Wells' Timothy Goes to School. I really appreciate this book because Wells addresses a fear kids aren't able to articulate at this age and one parents don't expect: that the other kids will be better, smarter, and cuter.

So, what's your favorite book about heading off to (real) school for the first time?
