Arnie has just returned home from the first day of first grade and he’s got lots to tell. His sympathetic mother offers the glass of milk and is ready to hear all about it. That's fortunate because we get to see what happened in a first grade classroom from a child's point of view. Arnie is sincere and accepting about his first day. He sees little humor in it.
