The first day of school is monumental in so many ways―for kids AND their parents. Nervous excitement and jitters are totally normal when you start something new for the first time. And going to school for the first time (or back to school after a year of remote schooling) checks all of these boxes―new people, new classroom, new friends. New is both exciting AND potentially anxiety-inducing for children.
Reading books about the first day of school can be helpful to prepare children for what is to come. While we all know the benefits of reading are numerous, books about school are a great way to calm those first day of school jitters. New adventures and experiences await. You've got this, kiddo!
