Harry could not wait for school to start. When he was five, he went to little school at the church with other kids. But this time, the day came when he could get on the big, yellow bus and go to first grade. With his backpack filled with a case of pencils and a lunchbox with his favorite peanut-butter sandwich, Harry steps into the big yellow bus, excited for the things that lie ahead. Different new faces stare at him, making him feel a bit scared. Will Harry be able to find a friend among the new crowd?
