A young mouse is starting school for the first time! Henry can't wait for kindergarten, where he'll sing songs, play games and learn his ABCs. He has a lot of questions for his mom about what to expect. But when he arrives, a slight case of the first-day jitters curbs his excitement. All is well, though, when Henry starts to see familiar sights and makes a new friend. Nancy Carlson's book Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come! is told with delightful charm by narrator Melanie Renate and set to music by Franz Hoffmeister, a close friend of Mozart's in 18th-century Austria.
