I’m excited to report that my three-year-old is now enrolled in preschool. He’s adjusting well and describes what he does during the day (“We read Pete the Cat!”) and the projects he works on. He talks about his friends, what they played with and even what they wore (“Paul is the one with the black and white striped shirt.”). I hope he continues to thrive in his new environment.
As I do with major changes in his life, I found children’s books we can read together to help him sort through any emotions and expectations he may have about entering preschool. Below are 8 children’s books about going to school well worth a read:
Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten by Joseph Slate (this was a particular favorite, to the point where I had to keep renewing the book from the library because he kept wanting to read it!)
Edit: Below are more books based on SSBE reader recommendations:
