Best Back To School Books For Kids 2

Back to school can be a time full of emotions: anxiety, excitement, fear, dread, happiness, etc. Especially if it is the child’s first year going to school. My daughter is starting preschool for the first time this year and I’ll tell you I’m full of emotions: anxiety, excitement, fear, dread, happiness, etc. Oh my daughter has some emotions about the situation too. Haha. But for real, my daughter does have a lot going through her head. She asks questions many times a day, wondering about different aspects of school. Besides telling her all I remember, we’ve been reading about it a lot. This list is 10 of our favorite Back To School Books.

Our favorite books to help with the emotions of {Back To School}
