Back to School Books

For many children, this past week marked the start of school in our community. Some preschool and kindergarten children may be beginning school for this first time this week. What stories have you enjoyed sharing with your child(ren) about beginning school? It can be a time of great excitement, as well as nervousness, as children (and parents) adjust to this big transition.

Here are a few staff favorites and new books to help with the transition:
Kindergarten Diary by Antoinette Portis
A Pirate's Guide to First Grade by James Preller
Adventure Annie Goes to Kindergarten by Toni Buzzeo

Amelia Bedelia's First Day of School by Herman Parish
Dinosaur Starts School by Pamela Duncan Edwards
I Don't Want to Go to School! by Stephanie Blake
It's Your First Day of School Annie Claire by Nancy White Carlstrom
Kevin Goes to School by Liesbet Slegers
Llama Llama Misses Mama by Anna Dewdney
The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn
