Anxious about the start of school? Books always help!
Often children starting nursery school or kindergarten have some worries. Will they have friends? Will they like the teacher? Will Mommy or the caregiver pick them up? Do they have snacks? Will the other kids like me?
Try reading books with your children, you know what Emily Dickinson said: "There is no frigate like a book to take us lands away".
There are many old stand boys and many new treasures:

A Kid is a Kid is a Kid by Sara O'Leary
My First Day by Phung Nguyen Quang and Huynh Kim Lien
