Tomorrow is the very last day of school for my kids. Eeek! We’ll be talking a great deal about my feelings on this matter over the coming weeks, I am sure. But for now, I wanted to share a fun new book we have been enjoying, and one that I think would make a great gift for a little one about to start kindergarten or first grade in the fall.
Check out Ally-Saurus and the First Day of School, by Richard Torrey. It’s all about a little dinosaur-in-training named Ally who brings her world of make believe right into the classroom. She quickly discovers that she’s different from the other kids, but she also discovers a whole classroom full of other fun “apprentices” such as an astronaut and a dragon.
I love the message in this book: it’s good to be yourself. And it’s good to celebrate what makes everyone special and different! It’s even good to try out something new (spoiler alert: Ally decides to start the second day of school out as a rabbit!).
It’s very cute and is really just perfect for easing those first day of school jitters!
