    Starting school can be scary but it’s great there are so many books to help children.

    My eldest child starts school this September and I’m really not ready for the changes, even if she is! I love the idea of reading relevant books to highlight and bring excitement around the changes ahead :)

    Wow! I didn’t even know these sort of books existed! I bet they are a great help for kids that are about to start!

    My eldest starts preschool in August. I’m excited for him but he doesn’t really understand it yet! How do dinosaurs go to school sounds right up his street – he’s dinosaur mad
