For many kids, starting school can be a scary and anxiety-provoking experience. Whether it be beginning school for the first time in their life, or starting a new year with a different teacher and classmates, many worries and fears pop up in the weeks and days leading to it.
This story addresses the common worries that children might have, including missing their family, not understanding the schoolwork, forgetting their supplies, or not having anyone to play with at recess.
It also offers creative strategies and coping methods to handle these typical anxieties, from taking deep breaths, wearing a special bracelet, or grounding themselves when the worry feels too big.
The end of the book features a list of these strategies along with spaces for kids to write down their own worries and their favorite coping methods to help navigate them.
