A Place Called Kindergarten by Jessica Harper
Tommy’s Animal friends miss him all day while he’s away but he has a great time explaining to them how much he learned while he was at this place called Kindergarten. A comforting depiction of a fun, exciting time that can also be a little scary.

A sweet way to show your child that while he/she is away that Mommy thinks of them throughout the day and wonders what they are doing while they’re at school.

Kindergarten Rocks! By Katie Davis
Dexter is Kindergartener-to-be and is scared. A great read to help ease the anxiety that comes with starting school for the first time.

Countdown to Kindergarten by Alison McGhee
A little girl counts down the days to kindergarten while being worried that she can’t tie her shoes.. The #1 rule of Kindergarten… in case you didn’t know!

Take a Kiss to School by Angela McAllister
A little apprehensive about the second day of school, Digby manages to make it through with the kisses his Mommy placed in his pocket. A great little idea for some extra encouragement to make it through some of those first days at their new school.

  1. Great suggestions! I will file these away for next year. Sniff. Llama, Llama Misses Momma is also a great one for young kids starting a new school, whether preschool or kindergarten.
