Video Review:    Franklin Goes to School

Related Links

Perfect for children just starting school--especially those who are a little nervous about it--Franklin Goes to School will help make the big day a little easier. 

In this video, Franklin the turtle is excited to go to school for the first time, but he's a little nervous too. But Snail is especially fearful, so Franklin gets to help him out, and braves the first day of school admirably.

Franklin's world is a warm, supportive one. Parents will recognize some of the characters' moods and behavior, such as Franklin's nervous stomach. The teacher, Mr. Owl, welcomes the newcomers and puts to rest each and every one of their fears--from having to spell "chrysanthemum" to not being able to find the bathroom.
