This is such a special book. I wanted to hug it when I was done reading it and wanted to start again. It gave me goosebumps and made me smile. Knowing who you are and where you belong is sometimes a struggle and this sweet book deals with this issue in such a wonderful and precious way. Give it a read. I think you'll want to hug it too.
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.
