Sometimes it’s a challenge to get our little ones adjusted to the idea of returning to school. Many kids are going back this month or right after Labor Day weekend. There’s a book called On My Way to School that is just perfect for kids between the ages of 3-7 years old that will encourage them to look forward to school by just using their imagination!
The book is about a little girl named Livi who does not want to go to school. She would rather stay in bed, imagining that she is a pirate, chef or a snail. She drags her feet getting dressed in the morning, brushing her teeth & eating her breakfast. Once she is finally on the school bus, little Livi imagines that she is a lemur. At long last she arrives at school, only to realize that school is a really fun place where you get to play, share & learn!
Author Sarah Maizes delivers yet another imaginative book in the “On My Way” children’s book series. On My Way to School is illustrated in such a fun, creative way by Michael Paraskevas.
My daughter is 8 years old. Although she has told me that she is “too old for picture books” (lol), she still got a kick out of reading this book! We have decided that when her little cousin goes off to preschool next year, we will be giving this book to her so that she can get excited about going to school.
If you live in the Los Angeles area, you can meet Sarah Maizes on Saturday the 16th at Children’s Book World on West Pico Boulevard! Storytime & book signing will start at 10:30am. For more information, click here to visit the Children’s Book World website.
Is your little one heading off to school in the coming weeks? What are you doing to prepare him or her for the experience?
