Where's my peg? my first day at school ISBN: 9780750225038
Gordon, Mike and Green, Jen
Published by Wayland (New Experiences series), 1999
The small boy is a bit worried but excited too at the prospect of his first day at 'real' school. It helps that friend Sonia is starting too, and by the time he has met his teacher, a new friend Sam, found his peg (with a lion on it) and seen the guinea pig Eric, he is ready to join in the fun. The multi-cultural school room, full of activity, untidyness, and minor disasters is realistically portrayed in comic-style illustrations. There are two pages of notes for parents and teachers, suggestions for using the book in the literacy hour, and a short annotated list of further reading.
Age: 4+
