It’s been almost a month into the new school year! Is this your little one’s first year in school? Or is your little one starting at a new school? Starting school can be daunting for some children as they face uncertainty about friendships, expectations and unknown class routines.
Reading picture books about starting school can create opportunities for children to discuss their fears and concerns, as well as talk about all the wonderful new things they are about the experience.
If your child just started school this year, here are some fantastic Chinese children's picture books that can help reassure children about starting school or going to a new school.
This book is part of a fun series of board books with flaps and movable parts for the little hands to manoeuvre, touch & feel. This is a great introduction for little kids and has loads of lovely illustrations that introduces the different aspects of school life to young children.
If your child is still feeling nervous about the new environment, or needs some persuasion to attend school each morning, this is the perfect book for him/her! Take a peek at what cute little animals learn in school, and take this opportunity to invite your child to draw parallels to his/her own schooling experience! (P.S. We absolutely adore the super cute illustrations by the Korean author!)

Things were great at first, until Mommy started behaving inappropriately......
