Well, it's that time again, the school year is about to begin. This is a bittersweet time for most parents; on one hand it's nice to get back into a routine and maybe, for some, have a few hours to yourself. On the other hand it's hard to give up the easy, free, days of summer and the luxury of having the company of our children. I know I will see a lot less of my kids once homework and activities kick in.
For children, it's a time of high emotions, fears, excitement, sadness, and happiness. As parents we know that this is a time to be especially gentle with our children as they make this transition. For those with children starting school for the first time, extra care is especially needed. As always, books are there to help. We have many wonderful back-to-school books and Ms. Eileen has put them on display. Please feel free to talk to us about your children's school transition and how we at the library can help.
