It’s Off to Kindergarten! Penelope’s Big Day Published by Outskirts Press

Children’s author Iris Benn shares with her readers the excitement and challenges of entering kindergarten as young Penelope starts her first day of school.

Wellington, FL, September 01, 2012 --( Author Iris Benn announced today the release of Penelope’s Big Day, Early Childhood Life Lesson, published by Outskirts Press. Iris helps parents prepare their children for the first day of school and promises to make it a positive milestone in their lives as they follow this charming tale of Penelope’s own first day in kindergarten.

With three sons and five grandchildren, Iris is well aware of the potential for anxiety on that first day away from one’s parents and out in the great unknown of a new school and the big world outside the home. While children are adaptable and adventurous, they can also be fragile and innocent, and the guidance and encouragement from parents, older siblings and other adult family members can make all the difference in preparing them for a good experience on that fist day at school. Iris’ book adds to that circle of help.

Our perky young heroine Penelope is eager to share the excitement of her Big Day and she provides an engaging and comforting role model for other youngsters about to embark on their first big adventure outside the home. Penelope’s been waiting a long time for this day and she knows it’s going to be exciting and fun.

As she shares her excitement, she provides a sunny outlook for this biggest of a child’s days and helps every child to be better prepared for the adventures of the day.

Iris is working on additional books about Penelope and her childhood adventures which will also help prepare young children for the challenges of life.

Penelope’s Big Day is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
