Back to School Already?

Back to School Already?

Back to school already? The summer seems to have flown by. Ready or not school has started. Going to school for the first time, adjusting to a new school routine or just getting back into things can have kids feeling a little anxious. Reading together can be a great way to reassure them and help them adjust to the new school year. Here are some fun and sometimes silly books about school to share with your children. Parents also need ideas for lunch, homework help, and other school challenges so we included a few books to make things go a little easier this school year as well.
