Lit List for Young Readers: Starting School


curated by Miss Julie, Youth Services Librarian

Welcome to this week’s installment of our blog series, Lit Lists for Young Readers, where your Youth Librarians cultivate some fresh reads for your kiddos to dig in to! These brief lists highlight a variety of topics with titles available through our online Evergreen catalog. Click the link and you’ll be able to place a hold on the titles right away with your Library card. Check out one or all of them!

The start of the school year probably looks very different this year.  Your kindergartner might be feeling a lot of different feelings.  Nervousness, excitement, anxiousness, shyness, happiness and more may be stirring around in your child’s mind (and yours)! Books and stories can be a wonderful resource for children to help them recognize and manage the feelings that come along with starting school and navigating a new routine.

Check out these great Starting School books to read with your child as the school year gets underway!
