Scholastic has some awesome books for all your Back to School needs! We love reading in our house. Samantha has acquired a passion for reading and I will find her sitting in a corner reading books to herself. She has been reading for about 7 months now and I can not believe how much reading has impacted her learning!
I’m Your Bus – Get ready for a rip-roaring, rhyming ride that celebrates all things drivin’ with a special spotlight on a kid’s four-wheeled best buddy–his school bus! When you’re a kid, your school bus can be your very best friend. Morning, noon, and nighttime, too, that golden buddy is at your service. Ready to drive you and your friends to and from school. And in-between those golden-bus moments, there are other vehicles who drive around town doing what they do best–sweeping, crunching, watching, creeping! Here is an in-your-face read-aloud that is bound to become a modern classic. Ages 4+
How Do Dinosaurs Go to School? What would you do if a very large Ceratosaurus stomped into your classroom?

Off to Kindergarten – On his way to his first day of kindergarten, a boy thinks about what he might need: His bear, a chair, a pillow, cookies, milk, paints-even his swings-until Mom explains that his teacher will have everything he needs. So he leaves his pile of stuff at home… “And all I take is ME!” Ages 4+
Happy School Year – All over town, children are waking up . . . choosing clothes . . . eating breakfast . . . getting ready for the first day of school!

It’s only after they arrive at school and discover the wonderful surprise waiting there that they know: It’s going to be a Happy School Year! Ages 3+
