Do you remember many of the "firsts" of your life? Whether it's your first day of school, or your first day of work... every time you experience a significant "first", it often marks a next stage of your life.
To a five-year-old, going out and buying stuff on their own is a huge adventure. Although the path to the convenient store down the block feels like an ordinary little alley, to the little girl in the book, it was journey full of excitement and adventure!
A bicycle ride towards her — what should she do??
Oh no, she trips and drops everything — will she cry?
Finally, she made it to the convenient store — what should she say to the cashier?
As young children read this beautifully illustrated book, they too will experience the emotional up-and-downs of what it felt like to go out and buy something on their own for the first time. Hopefully, this too inspires them to confidently tackle many other "firsts" in their own lives.
