Photograph caption dated September 17, 1962 reads "Wonderful world of the first week of school for kindergarten youngsters at Brett Hart Elementary School [sic] in Burbank is captured by Valley Times Today photographer George Brich. Children register a multitude of expressions upon hearing their first reading of 'The Three Bears' by their new teacher, Mrs. Merle Onstott. This fascinating new world opened it doors to Burbank students last week. Children in Los Angeles schools began classes today. Many will only be able to go on half-day sessions." The teacher is holding a book titled "The Three Bears Visit Goldilocks."; See images #00120578 through #00120580 for all photos in this series.
