Stuff to Know When You Start School




A survival guide for the busiest job you'll ever have: being a toddler

Learn all the super-important life skills you need to become a big boy or girl with this ultimate guide to being a toddler and starting school.

No matter what grown-ups tell you, being little is hard work. There's so much to learn from tying your shoelaces, finding the right hole for each arm in a jumper, remembering to say "please" and "thank you" (every single time!), understanding what this new baby is doing in YOUR house, sharing your toys with children you barely know, and a whole bunch of other things too. And if your days aren't extremely busy enough with very important and serious playing, soon you'll be starting school!

Don't panic, Stuff to Know When You Start School is here to help guide you along the way by teaching you the skills you need to look after yourself, get on with others, and be ready to go on your first day of school.

Our little boy has two mummies and I love the page on different families because school will be the first time he really experiences differences. Highly recommend this book!

My daughter loves this book, she took it in to nursery for the last two weeks of term and it's only just came home. Her nursery teacher used it at every circle time for two weeks

From discussing emotions to sharing the importance of hygiene, this is a brilliant, informative read. This would also make a great addition to a library in a learning setting
