Back to School

It's the first day of August and school is looming large on the horizon.
How can that be? We just celebrated the first day of summer break a few weeks ago!

The truth is most children look forward to the beginning of a new school year.
Reuniting with friends. Establishing familiar routines. Increasing their independence.

If your child is new to preschool this year or feeling shy about returning, today's book is a perfect read aloud.

It's Time for Preschool! by Esme Raji Codell.

Full of color and movement, this book shares the full range of activities that make up a productive day in preschool. Informative and engaging. Reassuring and exciting.

Illustrator Sue Rama uses watercolor and digital collage to create eye-catching double page spreads.

Esme Raji Codell is one of my favorite authors. Take a look at her other titles for young and old alike.
Spoiler alert - she has a new picture book coming to bookstores later this month!

This book is also a great read for the first day of school!
