Gigi's Starting School

Five-year-old Gigi feels a wide variety of emotions in anticipation of her first day of school. Gigi feels sad, afraid, and she misses her mommy. One act of kindness ultimately leads to a change in Gigi's feelings. Gigi's Starting School is a communication guide for parents, teachers, and adults working with children who struggle with expressing their feelings. It provides the opportunity for children to talk about their emotions when faced with changes, such as starting at a new school.
