It’s the beginning of August and school starts THIS week. Where has the time gone!? It’s like one minute you’re taking the last day of school picture and BAM, it’s time for back to school! I have a daughter going into 1st grade and a 3.5 year old who needs to start preparing for preschool. I love Usborne Books & More’s wide variety of books to help with back to school time.
Back to School Anxiety & Worry
Back to school can bring out excitement, but also anxiety about what is to come. Luckily, kids learn big concepts really well through stories told in books. Usborne Books & More offers a wide variety of books to help with anxiety, starting school, bullies on the bus, wearing glasses, and more…
