Back To School Books

      Our lead teacher has an abundance of books for children to read and explore according to the theme she is teaching. "The first week of school" is our opening theme for preschool this week, and as you can see, there are plenty of books in the classroom based upon this topic:
  • "First Day Jitters" by Julie Danneberg
  • "Little Critter's This Is My School" by Mercer Mayer
  • "The New Bear at School" by Carrie Weston
  • "D.W.'S Guide to Preschool" by Marc Brown
  • "Pooh's First Day of School" by Kathleen Zoshfeld
  • "If You Take A Mouse To School" by Laura Numeroff
  • "Tucker's Best School Day" by Susan Winget
  • "It's the First Day of School!" by Charles M. Schulz
  • "Class Clown" by Michael Martchenko

      Actor and author John Lithgow talks from his own experience about why reading aloud to children is important. Lithgow visited the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library on September 15, 2012, to read from his children's books and visit with Kansas City Symphony conductor Aram Demirjian.
