Today is Dani's first day of kindergarten. She picked out her favorite clothes to wear and she ate a big breakfast. Now she is ready to go!

Terry's Tips

Both home and school are great places for children to learn. Parents and teachers can teach children a love of learning.

In this story, Dani is going to school and she will have new challenges. This book will show how her motivation to learn helps her solve a hard problem.

When you start reading the story, the coaches will help draw childrens' attention to important ideas and their own experiences. There is also support around the book for the text, pictures, and audio. Additional background readings and research about motivation are included.
