About the Author
Ellen Jackson is the award-winning author of more than fifty fiction and nonfiction books for children. Like her father, an amateur astronomer, Ellen has been interested in planets, stars, and galaxies since she was a child. She remembers family star parties, at which neighbors were invited to gaze through her father's telescope at an eclipse of the moon or other astronomical objects.
"Through first-person accounts readers learn about the first day of school for 11 children from Peru, Kazakhstan, Kenya, India, and more. Each account is accompanied by a series of facts that tells readers a bit about the child's culture. Lively illustrations combine the particulars of each child's experience with the universal themes of leaving home and finding a place in the classroom." --Book Links--Other Print
