    We have a little while before school but A loves books and I’d never thought of using them as a way to introduce him to school, such a great idea and some of these look awesome! #sundaystars

  3. These are great. I’m a bit fan of using books to help your little ones understand things. My daughter is only 2 but using one about the potty. I will have to remember this is years to come. The personalised ones are brilliant! xx #sundaystars

    This is such a fantastic resource for parents wanting to help prepare their children for the start of term. I can’t imagine how I will feel when Little Miss H starts school. But it is great that there are books out there to help us both cope with the impending change. I love the idea if the rant and rave book and Freya’s reaction to theme is priceless. Thanks for being my co-host on #SundaysStars lovely. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

    What great books. That’s such a great idea to introduce them to school and to prepare them for it. I might use this idea for all things like: potty training, our first holiday, going to nursery. What a great idea! xx #sundaystars

    I like the rant and rave book, and I think Z would love it too. He’d probably love the Topsy and Tim one too. I think its about time we owned some of those 🙂

    some really good ideas for books here. I especially like the a-z with freya book. I’ll be book marking this as my youngest is not quite ready for it but its top of my list for when she is. Thanks for sharing #sundaystars

  24. So good to see Topsy and Tim and Janet and Allan Ahlberg both still going strong, brings back some great childhood memories 🙂 Thanks for hosting #SundayStars

  25. Perfect timing for this post for us as our youngest is starting school this year! Thank you so much, these books look great and I’ll definitely be investigating!

  26. Oh! l love that A-Z book, for sure that would spur their interest especially if they see their faces and names on the book. How i wish I have read this post before my little boy starts school on weds. Anyway, Thanks for sharing! #SundaysStars

    Neither of the cubs are quite at the starting school age yet but I love the idea of getting some books when they are. I particularly like the look of the A-Z book and I think Tyger would be thrilled to be the star of a book . He also gets very anxious about the unknown due to his ASD so I think preparing him with books would help when the time comes. Thanks for hosting #SundayStars

  28. Alison says:

    Some lovely books here. My daughter starts school in September, so I will have to keep a look out for some books to help her adjust. I might just take a look at these. Thanks for sharing. #SundayStars
