16 Fun Back to School Books!

I am thrilled again to link up with Deanna Jump for Book Talk Tuesday! Be sure to head to her blog to see who else linked up and what we recommend!

Wow, how is it that some of you are almost back to school again? Here in New England we have another month+ left (phew, since the last day I worked in the school building was June 24) but many of you are planning what to do during the first few days back!

I was thinking about some of the books I read to my class during the first few day of schools and thinking what books you may read at home to your own children. Here's my list of 16 Super back to school books for kids!  Click the names/covers of the books below  to get more details from Amazon or put them on your library book list. What's your favorite back to school book? Comment and let me know!
Of all of these, the ones I love the most are probably not even 100% Back to School themed- Wemberly Worried and Miss Nelson is Missing, but I find them great read alouds for the first week or so, My true back to school favorites are probably First Day Jitters and good ol' Miss Bindergarten gets Ready for Kindergarten. BUT my second graders last year loved My Weird School and I just saw they have a back to school book so that could be pretty "epic", as my kids would say! lol What about you? What stands out?

  1. I guess there is a reason so many children's books are mentioned as "classic back to school books"...I use many of those you picture above during our first days, too:) If you would like a chance to win 2 children's books that help develop empathy in students, please visit my blog @: SweetSchoolMoments
    Have a great week!
