Is your child going to school for the first time? Read these 8 children’s books about going to school to get him excited and ready for the big day.
I’m excited to report that we’ve enrolled our three-year-old 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 about going to school we can read together to help him sort through any emotions and expectations he may have about entering preschool.
Going to school, whether preschool or kindergarten, can be scary for children. Books and stories talking about their fears and anxieties encourage them to feel more confident.
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!)
