Clara Cassidy 1965
pictures by Eloise Wilkin
In preparation for Charlotte's first big day of school we read this old familiar Golden Book illustrated by Eloise Wilkins. Her pictures make me feel warm and fuzzy. She draws the kind of quintessential vintage American life that I feel like I live most of the time. It's funny how sweet and laid back this Kindergarten class is. And I love how there's a piano and the regular teacher plays it- music just part of the day, not a "special". I suspect Charlotte's day is much busier than this one, and there's certainly no nap time! But she's always been an adventurous girl so I know she's having fun.
(I LOVE her little knit headband/ear warmer. I can't seem to find one anywhere for Charlotte. I may have to convince my mom to make one for her!)
(We also read The Berenstain Bears Go To School the night before we visited her Kindergarten class).
