Hello there and welcome to another Tot School Tuesday where I share kid-friendly crafts, activities, and educational ideas.

TotSchoolTuesdaysButton

If you’ve been around MFTM for a while, you know that I used to be an elementary school teacher (specializing in early childhood development) and you know that I LOVE children’s literature. Today I thought I would share my favorite top 10 back to school books. These books are great as read alouds for the little ones and great for the older kiddos to read themselves. These books can be found at your local library or you can book hoard like me and “buy all the books” on Amazon.

Top 10 Back to School Books

First Day Jitters by Julie Danneburg

A cute story about a girl named Sarah Jane who is nervous about the first day of school. The ending makes you laugh out loud and want to read it again.

Fancy Nancy: Jo-Jo’s First Day Jitters by Jane O’Connor

We LOVE Fancy Nancy in this house. With the fancy vocabulary and fun illustrations you’re sure to love this book.

I Am Too Absolutely Small For School (Charlie and Lola) by Lauren Child

Lola isn’t so sure about starting school but luckily her big brother Charlie is there to convince her that school is fun.

The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn

Such a cute story about a little raccoon seeking reassurance from his mother before his first day of venturing out in the world.

David Goes to School by David Shannon

David’s antics are sure to keep his teacher busy and the kids laughing.

If You Take a Mouse to School by Laura Numeroff

We love Laura Numeroff books and this one is a must read for back to school season. Join the silly mouse as each item he needs for school leads to another that is just as important.

My Teacher Sleeps in School by Leatie Weiss

A cute story about the silly things students assume about their teachers.

Little Critter: First Day of School by Mercer Mayer

Little Critter has a lot to do to get ready for the first day of school and he is a bit nervous.

Franklin Goes to School by Paulette Bourgeois

Franklin is ready for his first day of school…until it’s time to get on the bus.

Countdown to the First Day of School by AnnMarie Harris

A cute book that counts down to the first day of school and talks about all the things you need to do to get ready for the first day.
