Summer is over, and it's time to go back to school. Michael is going to first grade, but he doesn't want to go. He wants to go back to kindergarten. Instead of going to first grade, Michael comes up with an elaborate plan to go to both grades at the same time! How will he do this?


Firstgarten is about a little boy named Michael who loved his kindergarten class so much, that when it was time for him to go to first grade, he didn't want to go. Michael was overcome with so much fear about going to first grade, that he decides to come up with a plan to attend both grades at the same time! As Michael enters his first-grade classroom, he looks for the little round tables he once had in his kindergarten class, but all he sees are desks that look larger than life. This is not what Michael expected. Michael puts his elaborate plan into action on the first day of school. Will it work?
