Do princesses really need rescuing? Please! I don’t like this message imparted to young girls so, in a perfect world, these are the books I’d read instead to my daughters!
A transition to a new grade or school, not matter how small, is difficult for children. It’s helpful to visit the new school as often as possible. Play with kids that will be at the same school if you can. And read, read, read to your child books about starting school. The familiarity of routines and activities of the new school will take a lot of the anxiety away. So, while my youngest has been visiting his elementary school for 5 years so far, we’ll take it one step at a time and read these books over and over to ensure a smooth landing in September. And a few playdates with new friends is also on the books!
This is ebook is not interactive but the story is so cute and the narration so lovely that it will be a hit with any little girl who insists on wearing only pink. There is a sticker application also that lets you move cute round pick “stickers” to your photo album so you print out at another time. The illustrations for this book (and ebook) are also lovely.
