From the Back Cover
Natalie has big five-year-old dreams for her future. So big, that her heart gets thumpy with excitement. Nat uses her very own words to tell about her hopes, struggles, and adventures. This makes the That's Nat! series perfect for young readers just ready for chapter books. Is School Ready for Natalie? Natalie's jitters go away when she sees her 'kindie-garden' room. She decides her first day of school is going to be the best ever---one she'll never forget. And one the school won't forget, either!

Top customer reviews
Natalie is an adorable 5 year old and she is just about to go "kinder-garden" and while she is perplexed that there isn't a "garden" in Kinder-garden...she is excited about her new journey.
Along with her best friend and her mom...she is able to conquer, enjoy and learn all about the adventures of becoming a "big" girl and going to school.
My twins absolutely ate up this book. There are a few pictures but it is not a picture book so it was a wonderful way for them to stretch their imaginations and hone their listening skills sothat they would be able to really understand Natalie's adventures.
I love the way that the author, Dandi Daley Mackall, truly uses 5-year old language to express Natalie's speech. Once you begin reading the book...it is so easy to visualize Natalie and her surroundings. Natalie is any little inquisitive 5 year old you will meet. She is adventurous, nervous, talkative, fun and mostimportantly inquisitive.
With all my heart I believe then when the author can create a visual image in your mind easily they have succeeded in creating a dynamic character...and Natalie is all dynamo!Natalie: School's First Day of Me (That's Nat!)
