A simple and reassuring picture book exploring a key topic for school and home

Going to school is a huge change for young children and they don't have adult coping skills to deal with it. Adults can help children feel more secure by showing them what to expect. This illustrated picture book explains in simple and reassuring terms what it is like to start school and how the reader might feel about it.

Discussion boxes offer an adult opportunities to discuss the issues directly with their child audience.

Charmingly clear illustrations give readers immediate access to complex situations and feelings and provide further stimulus for discussion.

Notes for teachers and parents provide useful advice on how to share this book.

Written by a trained psychotherapist, journalist and parent, and illustrated by a very experienced children's book artist, this is part of an acclaimed and successful series of picture-book non-fiction for Early Years.
