Starting or heading back to school can be a significant transition for kids. Advance planning and preparation for the first day of the new school year can go a long way toward allaying fears and avoiding issues (well, some anyway!) Some targeted reading is one way of helping your child prepare. We like the suggestions provided by the Bankstreet Library, part of the Bankstreet College of Education. Here is the link.

Good luck with the first and every day of the new school year!
