Early childhood experts agree that being prepared for a new experience and knowing what to expect are keys to relieving anxiety. At this time of year, patrons of Perrot’s Youth Services Department often come looking for books that will help them to help their little ones make a successful transition to a “school” situation, whether that means day care, playgroup, preschool, pre-K, or the big leap into (gulp!) kindergarten.
We have two lists of books about starting school: Starting School and Ready, Set, Go! to School. Plus, starting school is so important that it even has its own subject heading! Just do a subject search for “First Day of School” in our catalog, or follow this link to see Perrot’s books on the subject: http://tinyurl.com/2bhstmp
