Back to School

All the pictures people are posting online of their children's first day back to school have reminded me of a perfect back-to-school book I meant to mention this week. 

Noni is Nervous by Heather Hartt-Sussman with illos by Geneviève Côté is about a little girl starting school for the first time and worrying about all the little things that seem huge when you are that size. Great gift for first week of school.

Hmmm... maybe I should have gotten a copy BEFORE my first grader threw up yesterday morning!

Great recommendation, Sara!

Thanks, Danielle.
And Tanya, hope your little one is enjoying first grade after a rocky start!

We just got this one in our collection at the library and it's made a nice addition to the usual run on back-to-school books in late August. I also particularly like Oliver and his Alligator - a little weird, but I found it charming.
