Welcome to Preschool Books!

Published August 29, 2014 8:00 AM by Stephanie Bruno-Dowling
As we all know, the first day of school can be daunting and even scary, especially when children are just 3 and 4 years old and entering a classroom for maybe the first time. Reading fun, light-hearted stories about the experience can really put their mind at ease. Today's post highlights several age-appropriate books that can be used with children entering school for the first time and getting ready to begin preschool!

1. The Night Before Preschool - written by Natasha Wing, illustrated by Amy Wummer

  • Appropriate for children ages 3-5, preschoolers
  • We actually own this book and it is adorable! I purchased it last year when my daughter began preschool as a 3-year-old and was very nervous about her first day. This endearing tale helped to lessen her fears and encourage a sense of anticipation and excitement for the fun times that were waiting for her "big girl" school!
  • Earned 4 and ½ stars on Amazon

2. Maisy Goes to Preschool: A Maisy First Experiences Book - written and illustrated by Lucy Cousins

  • Appropriate for children ages 3-5, preschoolers
  • This book is part of the "Maisy" series and kids love them! We own "Maisy Cleans Up" and it is one of my younger daughter's favorite books. The summary on Amazon states that: "Preschool for Maisy means a day filled with friends and things to do, from the time she hangs her coat on a special peg to the time she says good-bye. There's painting and snack time, stories and nap time .... (this book is a) child-friendly look at a day in the life of a preschooler."
  • Earned 5 stars on Amazon

3. Curious George's First Day of School - written by H. A. Rey

  • Appropriate for children ages 3-8, preschooler - 3rd grade
  • Summary from Amazon: "Curious George has been invited to Mr. Apple's class to be a special helper! George is just the right monkey for the job - until he starts to wreak his usual havoc, that is. Red and yellow paint makes orange, yellow and blue makes green ... and a mixture of all the paint colors makes a big mess! ... A full-color twenty-four-page paperback with bonus activities inside, including an ‘Ants on a Log' recipe, a word search, and a ‘Color Your World' craft idea."
  • Earned 4 and ½ stars on Amazon
