School Time Will Be Here Before You Know It!

Yes, there's still a month left before the school year begins, but, if you have a little one who will be going to school for the first time, August can be used to slowly introduce the child to the concept of school. One of the titles below may work as an introduction to this new experience. Don't make a fuss over "preparing the student." Encourage questions and let the child see that school is not something to be feared. (It is quite often the parent who is feeling anxious and that anxiety transfers to the child, so be aware of your own fears, and how you may be influencing your child through your tone of voice, facial expressions, and body language).

As with every new book, the parent should read the book first to make sure it is the right book for the child!
