Title: Brand-new Pencils, Brand-new Books
Author: Diane Degroat
It’s the first day of first grade! Gilbert is excited and nervous at the same time. He has new school supplies—but he’ll also get a new teacher, and new kids in his class. Will the teacher be nice? Will Patti still be his best friend?
In this humorous and reassuring story by Diane deGroat, Gilbert learns that first grade is not what he had expected. Lewis is a bully, and Philip already knows how to read big fat books! But Mrs. Byrd is nice, and she helps Gilbert discover that everyone has his or her own special talent.
