Whether you look or sound different, or come from a place no one else has even heard of – you are unique and that’s ok.

9. A Letter From Your Teacher On Your First Day of School: (1st grade-3rd grade). For the older crowd of new students – haha – you know the 7-8 going on 21 group. A heartwarming letter from their new teacher letting them know that as challenging as the new school year may be they are gaining a new ally in them. I love this book because it touches on an important aspect of school, and community, at a very delicate age. 
10. Amelia Bedelia’s First Day of School: (preschool-1st grade) Ms. Amelia is a childhood favorite to all. Her cheerful antics and positive outlook leave every hairy situation with a heartfelt lesson and solution. The first day of school is no different!
