His sister's first day of school is Tom's last day of true independence.

On her first day of kindergarten, Alice isn't really that nervous at all. It's her brother, Tom, who is upset -- in fact, he's downright mad! It's his school, and why should he have to share it with his annoying little sister?

For any family dealing with first day nerves, this bright and reassuring picture book will help ease the transition into school -- both for new students and their older siblings.
