Books for Back to School


The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn
This is a really heart warming book.  Great for the first day of school.

Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes
Chrysanthemum has great self confidence until that first day of school where kids think her name is funny.  Great for self esteem and acceptance.

David Goes to School by David Shannon
From the author of the popular "No, David!" books this is about his first day of school.  If you know David, this won't be one well behaved child!

Upper Grades

Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Juby Blume
Peter is a fourth grader who has to deal with his little brother, Fudge!  And he has had it!!

The Fabled Fourth (and Fifth) Graders of Aesop Elementary by Candace Fleming
Funny books about a teacher and kids who are not typical.  

Hope this helps you pick something out for that first day (week) of school!
