How will it all unfold?
At the beginning of any school year, teachers are learning about the students who will be in their class. At the same time, parents are also learning new routines, getting their children ready for school, and preparing for the next chapter in their children's lives. I can't tell you how many times I have read The Night Before Preschool, The Night Before Kindergarten, and now, The Night Before First Grade. My fourth graders are past this ritual, but we still need to make sure our children are in bed on time, remind them to brush their teeth, and myriad other activities. This is a very busy time for us in a household of two adults, three children, two dogs, and, yes, Drizzle, our pet fish.
