“Mom can I take Nonnie to school? I bet she will learn a lot!”
She shakes her head. “Nonnie must stay here.”
My lower lip sticks out, my head hangs low,
my tummy starts doing flips and feels funny.”
A young girl is afraid that her first day of school will mean leaving her best friend Nonnie, a giraffe, behind. This picture book, set in Botswana is the perfect match for any child starting something new to ease worries and anxiety, while teaching an important lesson.
