Posey is nervous about starting school. She’ll have to get out of the car at the Kiss-and-Go Lane, and walk to her first grade classroom, past the “Monster of the Blue Hall,” all by herself. Worse, she’s not allowed to wear the pink tutu that turns her into Princess Posey, the Pink Princess, who can go anywhere, do anything.
We’re very excited about this first-in-a-brand-new-series-of-books for the transitional reader. Any first grade teacher knows there are usually one or two students each year who are timid/afraid/shy/worried about the transition from kindergarten to first grade.
Even though – for many kids – kindergarten is at the same school, with many of the same, familiar faces, first grade *is* different. And moving up to first grade is a big deal.
Princess Posey is charming, honest, and brave enough to share her own wonderful way of dealing with her fears – a parade! What could be better? Kids and teachers will get a kick out of this book. And the best news? More Posey adventures are on the way, with PRINCESS POSEY AND THE PERFECT PRESENT scheduled for release in March, 2011.
