When parents send their child to school for the first time or back to school for first grade, they may feel some pride, but they might also feel a little anxious. It is a big step, after all. Kids can also feel some anxiety. Reading some back to school books can help. Even though kids could be looking forward to being more “grownup,” eager to learn all they can, ready to make new friends, they may also be worried about what school will be like, what will be expected of them, and whether the other kids will like them. Back to school books will help children understand what to expect and help parents talk to their child about starting school.
