It's time to go back to school, that most complicated of seasons...excitement, joy, anticipation, nervousness, dread, sadness, longing....so many feelings for all involved. Ah.
As always books can help. Come into the library and check out the "Back To School" books in the bins at the front of the library. Grab a lollipop or candy while you're there as your back-to-school sweet treat. Here are some of the books you may be interested in:
- I'm Your Bus, by Marilyn Singer. With rhyming text and bright illustrations, this cheerful and fun book make the already-exciting first bus rides to school even better.
- Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten? by Audrey Vernick with hilarious illustrations byDaniel Jennewein. I love this new book. It's so sweet and funny and delivers a great message...that kindergarten is a place for everyone, and it's okay to be who you are.
-Welcome to Kindergarten, by Anne Rockwell. Rockwell is well-known for her quiet, gentle, books. In this one, a boy and his mother are introduced to kindergarten routines and activities so that the boy greets his first day feeling reassured.
