and a First Day Memories Sheet
Sarah Jane Hartwell has that sinking feeling in the pit of her stomach--she's nervous and doesn't want to start a new school year. She doesn't know anybody, and nobody knows her. It will be awful. She just knows it.
With a little convicing from Mr. Hartwell, Sarah Jane reluctantly heads to class. Shy at first, she's quickly befriended by Mrs. Burton and reminded that everyone
at school gets the jitters sometimes.
A beloved and bestselling back to schools staple, Sarah Jane's familiar story and its surprise ending will delight seasoned students and new faces alike who are anxious about their first day.Author:

As an adult, she is a former middle-school teacher and the author of the bestselling Jitters series, including First Day Jitters
and Last Day Blues.
She lives in Colorado.
