          First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg is funny and I can really connect to it! I think other kids will be able to connect to it too. It's about a girl named Sarah Hartwell who doesn't want to get out of bed on the first day of school. She has all kinds of excuses to try to not go to school, but Mr. Hartwell makes her go anyway. The surprise ending will shock readers! I think students will connect with Sarah. Most kids have been nervous on the first day of school before also. On my first day at a new school, my mom had to force me to get in the car. She had to walk me to my new class because I was so scared. Sarah acted the same way. Mr. Hartwell had to force her into the car too. The principal even had to walk Sarah to her classroom! I also thought the book was funny because Sarah was trying EVERYTHING to stay at home. The pictures show silly ways she tried to get out of going to school. If you are looking for a funny book that will help you get through your first day of school, you should definitely read First Day Jitters!

            I've read one of the most funniest books called First Day Jitters By Julie Danneberg. In this book (First Day Jitters) it’s the first day of school and Oh! No! Sarah Hartwell will not get out of bed! Mr. Hartwell tries his hardest to get Sarah out of bed. I liked this book because there’s a bunch of creative pictures. It also made me have a fun twist! Who will Sarah Hartwell turn out to be? Find out in the book First Day Jitters!
