Garmann is six-years-old and soon he'll be attending his first day of school. Not surprisingly, he's a little scared about this. The summer is almost over and once again, as they do every year, three old aunts have come to visit Garmann's family to drink coffee in the garden and admire the season's show.Read more ›
A book like this, with its rather 'heavy' and philosophical content, will appeal to adults and older children, but is also great for having discussions with younger children about their fears. A truly unique book that I intend to purchase for my home library. Highly recommended!
In the event that a parent or teacher reads this book to a child, the adult should be mature and honest enough to confront the themes of death and emotion that underlie the story because kids will surely ask questions. But in this cusp between the end of a long summer vacation and the looming start of a new school year, school children of Garmann's age might enjoy reading this story and realizing that they are not the only ones scared of the first day of school.
