There won’t be a zoo escapade or a high-flying circus exploit today for Adventure Annie. Instead, it is her FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARTEN ADVENTURE! Luckily with her zookeeper hat, her high-wire slippers, and her walkie-talkies tucked into her backpack, Adventure Annie is ready for anything–even Kindergarten! Her teacher isn’t pleased when Annie tries to turn every activity into an adventure, but when the milk for snack time goes missing, it’s ADVENTURE ANNIE TO THE RESCUE! This energetic and laugh-out-loud story is sure to get every kid excited about starting their own Kindergarten Adventure.
