Eleven Truths of Kindergarten (so true I'll swear by them on a stack of Caldecott Winners)

  1. "l-m-n-o-p" sure do sound like one letter when you say the alphabet real fast.
  2. 5th graders are as tall as giants when you pass them in the hallway.
  3. even though it is loud, Mrs. Pearce's bathroom toilet will not gobble you up when you flush it.
  4. a loose tooth, about to fall out any minute, is a really big deal.
  5. the excitement of a good fire drill can last all (and I do mean all) day. 
  6. a well-earned visit to the Principal's treasure chest is as good as a trip to Tiffany's on 5th Avenue. 
  7. "The Three Billy Goats Gruff" is one scary story if you do the Troll's voice just right.
  8. a new haircut or a new pair of shoes are definite cause for spontaneous Show and Tell.
  9. "Humpty Dumpty" is not just a rhyme about a cracked egg, but is really all about life's consequences.
  10. if the moon is full or the chance of rain is more than's going to be one heck of a day.
  11. a bandaid and a hug will fix just about anything.
