School's First Day Of School

School Here We Come!

 It is that time of year again, the beginning of a new school year. For some parents and children this tradition has become routine, and for others it is the very first stage of growing and going to school for the very first time.  This joyous list of  books is sure to help parents calm children of their first day jitters and show them how much fun they will have on their first day of school and onward.
