for children just starting school--especially those who are a
little nervous about it--Franklin Goes to School will help
make the big day a little easier.
In this video, Franklin the turtle is excited to go to school
for the first time, but he's a little nervous too. But Snail is
especially fearful, so Franklin gets to help him out, and braves
the first day of school admirably.
Franklin's world is a warm, supportive one. Parents will
recognize some of the characters' moods and behavior, such as
Franklin's nervous stomach. The teacher, Mr. Owl, welcomes the
newcomers and puts to rest each and every one of their fears--from
having to spell "chrysanthemum" to not being able to
find the bathroom.
