School Days

September means the transition back to earlier bedtimes, stricter routines, the end of summer and the beginning of school for many children. A few new books that center on the subject of school are featured below:

Jake Starts School by Michael Wright (Feiwel and Friends, 2008)

No one can pry a frightened Jake away from his parents on the first day of school, and so the three must watch as his classmates have fun until, at the end of the day, his teacher finally gets him to let go.

The New Bear at School by Carrie Weston, illustrated by Tim Warnes (Scholastic, 2008)

When a new bear comes to school, all the other animals are afraid of him until he saves them from the Rat Pack bullies.

Panda Goes to School by Tara Jaye Morrow, illustrated by Aaron Boyd (Sterling, 2007)

Panda is nervous about his first day of school, but his mother and new teacher help him to adjust and enjoy the experience.
