Back to School Reading with Scholastic

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? And what if the student sitting next to you was a gigantic Silvisaurus-who decided to jump on top of your desk? Come along and join the fun as dinosaurs ride the bus, read their favorite books, and have fun on the playground with all their friends. Going to school has never been so much fun! Ages 3+


Billy Bully – As Billy Bully does one rotten thing after another, his friends dwindle to zero. With a little effort, Billy Bully realizes that a real friend doesn’t think only of himself. Kids will love to count down–and most importantly–back up, as Billy Bully makes it up to his friends and gets the whole gang back together! Ages 4+


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! But for six kids, the day is more scary than special — it’s cause for hiding under the covers rather than leaping out of bed. 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+
