August Book Picks- School Days

When we think of August, back to school comes to mind. Time to get back to the 3 “R”s: reading, writing and arithmetic. Books this month will focus on getting our kids reading for another successful school year.


Elementary (Grades K-4)

Middle (Grades 5-8)

High (Grades 9-12)

Tips to Start of a Great School Year

  • Visit the school or classroom before the first day. 

  • Read books about starting school.

  • Talk to your child about their feelings about school, friends, teachers, and new activities. 

  • Set intentions with your child for the school year ahead. 

  • Implement a regular sleep and waking routine with your child. 

  • Make the first day a special occasion.

  • Arrange a playdate with your child with a friend or family member. 

  • Be open to hear all about the first day activities.
