About this title
A heart-warming story, told with kindness and emotion, featuring the passionate illustrations of Bruce Langston.
Libby is just plain scared to start kindergarten! Even though Mom tries to reassure her, she is wiping away tears as they walk down the long hall to her classroom. Before Libby can make a dash for home, Miss Darling enlists Libby's help to warm up her cold hands. Libby hangs on tightly but she notices that Miss Darling's hands get warmer quicker as her kindergarten year progresses. This story about those scary first days at school reminds us how good it feels to find a warm hand to hold when we take a big step on our own.
"Welcome Libby!" Miss Darling said. "I've been waiting for you! I have a special job just for you. I was hoping you could warm up my cold hands."
Libby slowly held out her hand.
"Why Libby, your hands are as warm as toast!" said Miss Darling.About the Author:
