Overview from Barnes and Noble:
It's the night before preschool, and a little boy named Billy is so nervous he can't fall asleep. The friends he makes the next day at school give him a reason not to sleep the next night, either: he's too excited about going back! The book's simple rhyming text and sweet illustrations will soothe any child's fears about the first day of school.
My youngest child will start preschool this fall and we borrowed this book from the library. He is very excited to be going to school like his older siblings and to have a back pack and a teacher. We read this book quite a few times before we returned it to the library so someone else could take a turn with it. It was nice that he couldn't sleep because he is excited, not because he is scared. I love all the books that are a take on The Night Before Christmas. I read them for a lot of different holidays and occasions and the rhyming just adds a little bit of extra fun to them.
