Pub. Date:
The animals in the barn are in a tizzy. Tommy didn't show up at his usual time! The dog tells them Tommy is gone-a big yellow bus took him to a place called kindergarten. "Where is kindergarten?" they exclaim. "What will happen to Tommy there? Will he ever come back?!"

Eventually Tommy bursts into the barn with tales of all he learned in kindergarten including- A is for apple, B is for biscuit, C is for corn, and D is for dandelions (the treats he brings for each animal), and everyone is happy Tommy is going to school.

A charming, tender story that's sure to reassure any child heading to kindergarten and everyone waiting at home to hear all about it.
