These books are all about going to school and are a great way to ease the transition from summer to the school year with young kids. Some are about preschool, some are about that big first day at kindergarten and some are more general.

Many handle the topic of school anxiety and I think those are the great tools for kids that are not eager to separate or are natural worriers. I Don’t Want to Go To School! By Stephanie Blake is a funny little book that deals with the big issue of not wanting to go to school.
