10 Best Back to School Books for Preschoolers

Y’all I can see it, the light at the end of the summer tunnel. We made it! We survived. We actually had fun – did you see our trip to The Henry Ford Museum in Michigan? Phenomenal. Now it’s time to turn our attention to all things back to school, then fall, then football, then Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas……..ok, that’s just crazy. Let’s just focus on back to school.

Back to school for us isn’t until after Labor Day so we still have some time. 5 weeks to be exact but who’s counting? Even though we are only going to do 3 half days a week of preschool, I’m still prepping Big Nugget for the transition back to the routine. We will also start to talk about our preschool drop-off routine. It has been so helpful in getting her comfortable with new environments, even with the few camps she’s done this summer.

New places, new faces, new surroundings can be so overwhelming. It’s great to give them some tools to cope with all the emotions. Books are a great way to gently introduce some new or scary or complicated concepts. They were super helpful when we were starting to teach her about diversity. Back to school is no different. Here are some of my favorite books, perfect for preschoolers.

    • Yes! It’s great to get a conversation started, it’s amazing how much they absorb. We are especially into the Splat book right now. So darling.
