Starting School by Janet and Allan Ahlberg is firm favourite in our school library, with children returning to it again and again. When reception first attend the school library it is one of the first books I read to them; it puts them at ease straight away.
This is the perfect book to read to a child before they begin school or after they have just started. It deals with slight problems that might arise but doesn’t make them a big worry. The illustrations are detailed with soft tones which give a aura of calm.
Loved by parents and children alike, should be given to and read to every child on starting school. Perfect read aloud!
