The first day of school is both scary and exciting for Otto. At first, he is very nervous, but then he realizes how much fun school can be. Otto learns all kinds of things - how to share his toys, how to play games, and even how to remember that shoes are for wearing, not for eating. (Silly Otto!)
Todd Parr's bold illustrations and simple text are the perfect fit for children just starting their reading journey. At the end of the story, Todd offers a reassuring message to cure those back-to-school jitters: "The first day of school is fun and exciting. You will meet new friends, learn new things, and then you will be really, really smart! Love, Otto and Todd."
