Bobby's speech therapist suggested we create a book to help the kids adapt to the idea ofgoing to preschool 2 mornings a week. Here's what I've come up with! It's only 14 pages, but I think it may help alleviate any stress or worry the kids may have about being in a strange environment for a few hours each week. When we drive by the school and our church (which are next door to each other), they really get excited, so hopefully this will another be another positive step.

So adorable! I think this is an awesome way to get them accustomed to the idea of going to school. I would definitely use something like this, if I didn't homeschool :-)

This is a lovely idea!! I'm sure it will help a lot, but I'm also sure they will quickly settle in and look forward to the next day! Love, Fran

Love the book. I'm working on one for my daughter re: our impending move back to the US.

When Burrito and Tamale were starting school for the first time last year we read many (6, I think) books about going to school and it also helped to show them photos along the lines of what you've done with B&M's book. In our case we were able to visit the classroom several times before their official start, so I could show them photos of themselves in their future classroom with their future teachers and classmates. For those who are starting at the beginning of the year and whose school doesn't operate in the summer that's not usually feasible, of course, but when it is, I highly recommend it. For my more anxious twin, being able to see the actual nap mats, playground, fish tank, etc. rather than generic ones was really reassuring.

Good luck!!
