Jun can't wait to learn how to count to a trillion! Penny's Dad tells her she'll have to learn how to sit still; Salma catches the bus all by herself; Khalil loves tying his shoelaces; Alex hopes she'll make a new friend, and Stephen's sister warns him not to throw up on the carpet!
Get comfy on the couch as we follow Salma, Stephen, Penny, Khalil, Jun and Alex as they start big school.
First Day is an Aussie classic, written by award-winning author Margaret Wild, who has penned over seventy children's books and is one of Australia's most beloved authors. Illustrator Kim Gamble captures the vibrant expressions and movement of these six kids from diverse backgrounds, in the classroom, the playground and with their families. You might also recognise Kim's style from Anna and Barbara Feinberg's Tashi stories.
To read along with the gorgeous illustrations, get your own copy of the book at your favourite bookstore, or on online at Allen & Unwin. First Day is published by Allen & Unwin.
Read by Lah-Lah and Buzz the Bandleader from Lah-Lah's Big Live Band.
