My son is growing up! He is starting Kindergarten in the fall. We got the first letter this summer from his soon to be teacher! It was SO exciting for him. He listened intently as I read it to him. His teacher listed somethings he could do over the Summer to get ready for school, practice cutting on a straight and curved line, practice writing all his letter, etc. When I found this great book I jumped at the chance to review it, Plus It!
