Our Top Picks of Back-To-School Books

Discovery Place Kids | Rockingham

Students will be going back to school in no time, and for many children, this will be their very first day of Kindergarten! Help prepare your child for their big day with some great back-to-school stories.

Research shows that reading with your child not only helps instill a love for books early on, but it can also help with important development skills like auditory processing, word and letter recognition, social interactivity and inspiring creativity.

Starting in August, Story Time at Discovery Place Kids-Rockingham will be dedicated to some of our favorite titles that will help young students overcome their first-day fears while practicing important listening skills for the Kindergarten classroom.

Even if your child isn’t getting ready to start Kindergarten, we’ll be reading lots of great back-to-school stories appropriate for all elementary ages as well:
