Twindergarten

Twindergarten by Nikki Ehrlich; illustrated by Zoey Abbott. 2017. Colored pencils. Published by Harper.

Brief summary: Twins Dax and Zoe do everything together. The night before school has them wondering what it will be like to be in different kindergarten rooms. Dax is a bit worried but changes his mind when they arrive to the school building and sees his new teacher. Zoe is now not so sure until she notices another girl with her exact backpack and makes friends with her. Both twins do several activities with new  friends and enjoy their mornings. The two siblings meet and play together at recess. Dax slips something into Zoe’s pocket before going back inside that lets her know he has not forgotten her.

Comments: This would be a super book to read on the first day of school if you are a teacher with one of the twins in your class and equally good if you are a parent with twins going in separate classrooms.  Making friends is easier for some students.   Students also could relate if they are in a different class from a close friend.  They may be comforted to know that they could also make new friends.
