Dax and Zoe are twins. They go together like peanut butter and jelly.
It’s the night before the twins are starting kindergarten, and they have the just-about-to-start-school jitters. After all, they will be in different classrooms! What will kindergarten be like when they’re not together all day? But Dax and Zoe will learn that kindergarten is full of new surprises and adventures, and being apart for a short while isn’t so bad.
Named one of the best books to help kids get ready for a new school year by Brightly.com, which commented: "Read along to see how these two siblings find the silver lining and the fun in being apart."
From author Nikki Ehrlich and artist Zoey Abbott Wagner comes a heartwarming picture book that’s perfect for anyone dealing with new experiences, especially little ones getting ready for school.
“While showing that a bit of anxiety is natural when facing a new experience, this attractive picture book fosters a hopeful attitude toward school.”
“Though not all siblings will be as mutually adoring as Dax and Zoe are, newcomer Ehrlich leaves readers with the comforting idea that just because one thing changes doesn’t mean that everything has to.”
“Working in soft colored pencil, debut illustrator Abbott’s understated images feel airy and open, and she emphasizes not just the closeness between the twins but also the way they seem to trade off feeling confident and nervous about school.”
“Simple but attractive color pencil illustrations depict the action and emotions equally well.”
“The writing is direct and effective, and the story adeptly depicts a challenging time for most families.”
“This heartwarming tale is perfect for storytimes, and an excellent choice for families with young twins.”
