Top 10 Books Perfect for School Starters ~ #BackToSchool #FirstDay ~ @MacmillanKidsUK @LittleTigerUK @SweetCherryPub @KidsBloomsbury @BloomsburyEd @LKPChildrens

This September my daughter is starting school. It’s a big step and I’ve been on the hunt for the best books to help prepare her for the transition to school. Here are my top ten fiction and non-fiction books with emotional wellbeing and educational themes that will help children starting school. Plus a bonus bingo game!

I Am Violet by Tania Duprey Stehlik & Vanja Vuleta Jovanovic ~ #Spotlight #PictureBook #Interview #Review ~ @_secondstory

This spotlight features an interview with the author of a picture book and simplified board book that has really resonated with me. In these mirrored books, a mixed race girl is wondering why her skin colour is different to both her parents. Through a metaphor of painting, Tania and illustrator, Vanja, show Violet’s journey of identity and being proud to be who she is.
