New Experiences: Where's My Peg? - My First Day At School

New Experiences: Where's My Peg? - My First Day At School

by Mike Gordon (Illustrator), Mike Gordon (Illustrator), Jen Green (Author)


One of a series for young children that explores what it is like to go through a number of significant new experiences, this sensitive and entertaining book thoughtfully helps children to understand their feelings about starting school. Written from a child's point of view, it shows what to expect when starting school and how to understand the feelings that it often arouses. The humourous illustrations not only enable the reader to relate the book to their everyday life but also stimulate discussion about the experience. Notes for parents, carers and teachers help adults use the book most effectively with their children and include ideas for using it in literacy classes. Mike Gordon is a highly successful illustrator whose work for Wayland has established a respected information book brand.
