12 Back to School Picture Books

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Psst...I know it's Tuesday but I am coming to you today and Friday this week in an effort to enjoy our last full week of Summer.  Linking up With Erika and Becky for Tuesday Talk today as well as Crystal for her back to school linkup.  Check out their blogs for more fun today.  Love you sweet KOKO's!

If you are like us, we are in the home stretch before school starts next week.  EEK!  We are all anticipating the start of another school year and with that comes both enthusiasm and a few nerves at what the year will hold.  Most of the nerves around here are reserved for momma ;).

A great way to start a conversation with your kids about school is to read books about going back to school.  Today I am sharing 12 books that will enable you to to educate them on what school is like and what they can expect.    As you read, start a conversation with them and ask them what they are excited about, what they want to see when you go to back to school night and what they might be nervous about.  

Do you have a case of the worries?  Wemberly does!

Grab your tissue as you read this sweet book about feeling your love with a kiss kept in the palm of your child's hand.

This is a great book as he explores all the different places in a school.

Follows the theme of The  Night Before Christmas.  It makes a cute read the night before your child goes to Kindergarten.  We plan to read it at our house!

This book has a cute twist, you might not see coming!

A sweet tale about loving the name you have been given and the special person you are.

What are you reading to get ready to go back to school?  

Are you all excitement or are there a few nerves too?

Until next time, keep on keeping on (koko) with a joyful, faith-filled life! #tribekoko

  1. We love The Kissing Hand! I'm grateful that my kindergartner is excited to go to school with her big bro this year!

  2. We have a few of those all ready to read! I think the only one with jitters is this mama!

  3. So many new to us books listed so that means I need to head to the library or Amazon and add to our collection.

  4. Oh the Kissing Hand!!!! It's a favorite for sure!!! Great list, friend!

  5. Oh my gosh, Jackson's FAVORITE song right now is Wheels on the Bus..I need that book!

  6. We have the night before kindergarten and a few other getting ready for kindergarten books. Maybe we'll read them before Simon starts 2nd grade!

  7. IN LOVE with this post! I love it so much. The Kissing Hand is always such a classic and ANYTHING Pete the Cat! Wemberly Worried and Chrysanthemum are both two of my favorite read alouds during the first week. We read Chrysanthemum and then graph how many letter we each have in our own names. The kids love it. I loved everything about this book. I am praying for your mama heart! I completely agree, I start feeling a little anxious and a littler nervous for my kids when school starts as well! Enjoy your last week!

  8. What a great round-up of books! I always buy Mason a few books before school each year pertaining to the grade he's in. One of the books I've always bought was "The Night Before" - we had PreK, Kinder and First...but I cannot find 2nd grade anywhere. Bummer!

  9. We love reading The Kissing Hand and recently just discovered Back to School with Mac! You can read our review on the blog but Mac is perfect for starting a new school year and great for calming kids with school jitters! www.kidandkinblog.com

  10. I love this! We do the Kissing Hand and have read a bunch of these. I can't believe it is school time already!

  11. Love all of these!!! The Kissing Hand gets me every time!

  12. Great list! I need to pick up The Kissing Hand for my daughter. I always loved reading Chrysanthemum, Wemberly Worried and Amelia Bedelia to my students. We added God Bless My School and Miss Mingo and the First Day of School to our home library this year.
