Whether your toddler is heading back to school this fall, or will be starting school for the first time, it’s important to get them ready for that transition, especially if they are at all worried, scared, or nervous about it.
I’m thankful that my daughter was generally really excited about starting school last year. And after crying when we left her the first day, she hopped right out of the car the second day and didn’t even want us to walk her inside.
I think reading books with kids is a great way to help prepare them for new situations and also help them to acknowledge, and be able to talk about, the feelings that they’re having about starting something new. There are lots of great books out there about the first day of school, these are some of the best for toddlers and younger children who are getting ready to start preschool or kindergarten.
