Whether they’re heading to school for the very first time, moving to a different class, or starting somewhere brand new, some kids are more anxious for these transitions than others.
It could be that heading into an unfamiliar environment is causing worry, or maybe it's nerves about making new friends or leaving old ones behind. Whatever the reason (and maybe there isn't a clear one at all), the titles on this book list are a fantastic springboard to discuss the worries and anxiety that can come with changes at school and beyond, as well as helping keep open channels of communication about mental health and building resilience.
Afterall, there’s no better way to broach complicated subjects with young kids than to introduce those subjects through entertaining and informative books.
These enchanting stories are perfect to gift to the children in your life… and you’ll love reading them too!
