Starting kindergarten is a big milestone - and the hero of this story is ready to make his mark! He's dressed himself, eaten a huge, royal breakfast, and can't wait to be part of a whole new kingdom of kids. The day will be jampacked, but he's up to the challenge, taking new experiences in his stride with his infectious enthusiasm.
