A New School Year cover

A NEW SCHOOL YEAR: STORIES IN SIX VOICES (2017): In a unique narrative, readers meet a diverse group of six children ranging in age from Kindergarten through fifth grade. With nerves and excitement each child gears up for a new school year by hustling in the morning, meeting new teachers and new classmates during the day, and heading home with homework and relief by day's end. Simple, bright illustrations focus on each child and his/her worries, hopes, and successes on the first day of school. (Ages 5-10)
