First Day Jitters


If you have ever had a child or been a child experiencing the first day of school, you know how exhilerating or traumatizing it can be.   If your child is nervous about starting kindergarten or preschool, there are so many great books about the subject that you and your child can share.  Many of these are also great for the kids who look forward to school, but change their minds once they get there:

Billy and the Big New School by Laurence Anholt

Look Out, Kindergarten, Here I Come! by Nancy Carlson

I am too Absolutely Small for School  by Lauren Childs

  1. Hi,

    What fun to find my book, Kindergarten Rocks! on your list! Thank you for including it. Just so you know – the title is actually Kindergarten Rocks! not I’m Telling You Dex, Kindergarten Rocks — I think there was confusion because there is a talking bubble on the title page. I’ll never do THAT again, that’s for sure!

    In any case, thank you for including my book, whatever it’s called!

    Katie Davis
