Little Nic's Big Day
A heart-warming celebration of all the wonderful ways kids are truly themselves.
by Kasia Janczewski
We love this one at the bookshop and at home! A great resource for supporting transition to prep, changing schools or going back after the holidays as it shows Little Nic preparing for his first day at a new school. This book validates the worry kids experience when meeting new peers in a new environment while transforming their fear of being different into excitement about how everyone is different in their own awesome way. A great book that shows children from diverse cultural backgrounds and families, kids communicating and learning in different ways, as well as challenging gender stereotypes. Most of all, it shows school as a fun place to share and learn new and interesting ideas about the world and who we are.
