“Read with your child and talk about the school experience. Share with them stories about your memories of school, both the good and the less so. School is an adventure, and like all adventures, it has its ups and downs.”
Do you have a child starting school next week? Perhaps yours has already started (my 1st and 4th grader actually started last week) but is still feeling a bit apprehensive about the new year? If either of these apply to you, you absolutely must check out these fabulous tips and wonderful new book from Barefoot Books!
The Barefoot Books Blog is a great resource for teachers and parents. Recently, Barefoot Books was able to speak with Kathryn White, author of Ruby’s School Walk, early educator, and mom of five children, for some tips to help ease children’s start-of-school anxiety and make this an enjoyable milestone. To find out what she had to say click here (or on the image above).
Join Ruby on her way to school and see the world her mom cannot see. In an old house, she spies bats with red eyes peering out and scary witches that flit about. And these aren’t the only dangers on her path: tigers, crocodiles and mighty beasts abound! “I must be brave, I must be strong,” chants Ruby as she musters the nerve to scare them off; but will it work?
This book is a delightful addition to any classroom or home library, and makes a perfect gift for any new student (or teacher)! Even better, right now the hardcover edition of Ruby’s School Walk is on sale for only $10.99!
