Back to school is approaching (or has approached?) for many! We are about a month away from starting school and I know several schools have either started or will be starting soon as well. We’ve been pulling out back-to-school picture books in our house to get us prepped for the big day. These books are not only great for reading at home before school starts, or to read to your class on the first day of school.
How to Get Your Teacher Ready by Jean Reagan
We love the “How To” series, the humor of this book gives the first day of school a fun, exciting vibe.
The Day You Begin by Jacqueline Woodson
This book comes from one of my favorite authors. I love the inclusivity and perspective of this book.
Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes
Also a favorite author in our house. This book has a soft spot in my heart because it was the book my first-grade teacher read to the class on the first day of school (back in 1999!)
School’s First Day of School by Adam Rex
This perspective shift the book is written in makes it captivating and fun.
