Sam and Gram and the First Day of School: A Story to Answer a Child's Questions & Soothe Fears about School is a good primer for kids and their parents about what to expect when school starts. The book deals with many of the simple, logistical questions that keep tots up at night — When do I eat? Who do I eat with? What will I do in school? — and a special section for parents and caregivers offers practical ways to identify and address kids' concerns.
