Noni, a preschooler, sometimes became anxious about things (such as playdates with bossy friends) but nothing had ever worried her as much as the prospect of starting school. She dreaded the first day. What should she wear? Where should she sit? Would her teacher be nice or mean, and would she be able to open her juice box by herself?

The day before school was to start, Noni was a nervous wreck. She bit her nails, twirled her hair and talked nonstop to calm her nerves.

Because Noni was so worried, her parents and her younger brother were also worried. When they tried to ease her fears, nothing worked.

The next day, however, Noni enjoyed school immensely - in fact, she had a delightful time. She made new friends and she adored her teacher. All of her fears evaporated, and when she returned home, she was able to announce to her very anxious parents, “I really don’t know what you were all so nervous about!”

Montreal author Heather Hartt-Sussman, a mother of two, shows a sensitive understanding of young children in this gentle story about coping with the unknown. Her previous book about the same preschooler is entitled Noni Says No. Both stories have been attractively illustrated by Genevieve Cote, an award-winning artist also from Montreal.
