I am starting school

This book is about helping children prepare for starting school. Educators or families can print out the book in colour so that pictures or photographs can be inserted of the child’s new routine, environment, and teachers at school. Families or educators may choose to do this during or after children visit their new school. Families can then read the book regularly with their child to help familiarise them with their new school day.
