Publisher Description:
It's just ten days before kindergarten, and this little girl has heard all there is to know--from a "first grader"--about what it's going to be like. You can't bring your cat, you can't bring a stuffed animal, and the number one rule? You can't ask anyone for help. "Ever," So what do you do when your shoes come untied--and you're the only one in the class who doesn't know how to tie them up again?
