My nephew and niece are big readers so I know they would love so many of these books. Reading about going back to school can help make the transition to a new year a little easier.

I have no kids but yup I have some neighbours and friends with kids and I guess these preschool books will help them and their kids. I'll recommend it to them.

I have been looking for some new books to check out! My kids love reading but haven't done as much as they like lately due to being busy. they also rarely read a book more than once!
