Books for Back-to-School

Kids all over the area heading back to the classroom or getting ready to return, both as new and seasoned students.  The transition can be tough no matter what the age or how long they’ve been attending.  Besides talking about school weeks in advance and building up the excitement of being in a new learning environment, we, like many parents, use books to help make the adjustment from summer to school easier.  Our favorite is The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn, and Off to School! (Wonder Pets) made quite an impression as well. If you’re looking for some books to read with (or buy for) your kids as they start a new school year, here are some more recommendations:
