v3.1

For Lucy, with love

—A.J.H.

To my mom, who sent me to Miss Kay’s

—L.D.

M
y school starts in one week, so—
I have
SEVEN DAYS
to go.
Mom says be patient, do not worry.
But I can’t wait! I’m in a hurry!

7
days to Kindergarten.

I’ll be ready, I’ll be smart.
I will get a running start.
I’ll say thank you,
I’ll say please.
I will say
my ABCs!

6
days to Kindergarten.

I’ll be ready,
I’ll be good.
I will sit still
when I should.
I’ll use a tissue
when I sneeze.
I will count
my 1-2-3’s!

5
days to Kindergarten.

Yay!
Then I’ll go to school
in flashy sneakers (oh so cool)!
I’ll wear my superhero sweater
that makes me feel
strong and better.

4
days to Kindergarten.

I’m all set for show-and-tell
(and I can do it very well).
I’ll bring my pokey little snail
and talk about his slimy trail.

3
days to Kindergarten.

Three more days
and this week ends.
I can’t wait
to make new friends!
We’ll take turns
and play new games,
and practice writing
our own names.

2
days to Kindergarten.

Is it time to make my lunch?
Banana sandwich, ice cream crunch,
Popsicles, pickles, one lollipop.
At school I’ll ask who wants to swap.
