12 Back to School Picture Books


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.  


1.  This is the Teacher

2.  Wheels on The Bus

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

4.  The Kissing Hand
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.

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

6.  The Night Before Kindergarten
