Read an Excerpt

CHAPTER 1

Fanklin could count by twos and tie his shoes. He could zip zippers and button buttons. But Franklin was worried about starting school. And that was a problem because Franklin was going to school for the very first time.

Franklin woke up with the sun. "It's my first day of school!" he told Goldie, his fish.

Franklin packed his new pencil case with a ruler, a pencil, an eraser and twelve coloured pencils that he had sharpened himself.

Then he woke his parents.

"Hurry," he said to his parents. "I cannot be late for school."

Franklin's mother looked at the clock. "Even the teacher is not awake," she laughed. "It is too early."

"You must be very excited," said Franklin's father.

Franklin nodded.

It was so early that there was time to make a big breakfast.

"You'll need a full tummy to work at school," said Franklin's father.

Franklin was not hungry. "I already have a full tummy," he said. "It feels like it is full of jumping frogs."

Franklin's mother gave him a hug, "I felt that way on my first day of school. But the funny feeling went away."

Franklin ate a little. He double-checked his book bag. Finally it was time to go to school.

Halfway to the bus stop, Franklin clutched his tummy.

"I don't want to go," he said.

Franklin' father gave him a hug. "That's how I felt when I started school," he said. "Look. All your friends are waiting for the bus."

I'm very disappointed. I purchased this to be able to read with my son. It says that its available on nook devices and free nook apps. Unfortunately it's only available to people with Apple products. It doesn't work on Nook devices or the Android app. I don't understand how they can sell Nooks and then not make the Nook books compatible.. Maybe I'm missing something, but these kind of issues are only going to encourage people to go to their competitor.
