About the book:
Starting kindergarten is a big milestone--and the hero of this story is ready to make his mark! He's dressed himself, eaten a pile of pancakes, and can't wait to be part of a whole new kingdom of kids. The day will be jam-packed, but he's up to the challenge, taking new experiences in stride with his infectious enthusiasm! And afterward, he can't wait to tell his proud parents all about his achievements--and then wake up to start another day.
Award winning author Derrick Barnes is back with another beautiful book featuring a little Black boy with a regal theme.

The gorgeous illustrations by THEE Vanessa Brantley-Newton bring the book to life. You can feel the pride and confidence of this little King oozing from the pages.
