Winchester! Hurry up or you'll miss the bus. It's the first day of school! Aren't you excited? We have matching bookbags.
Is that what that thing is around my neck? I thought I turned into a Saint Bernard.
I'm in first grade. You're in catergarten--again.
Can I help it I like the snacks? And we get to take naps.
My lunch is packed and I have all my school supplies. Best of all, I have new school books. Don't school books smell wonderful? They smell like crisp fall mornings and new words and new ideas and new beginnings . . .
You got all that out of one sniff?
My favorite subjects are reading and spelling. What're yours?
Lunch and recess.
Here comes the bus!
Wait! I don't want to go to school! I'm smart enough. I want my mommy!
