As a kid, going back to school was one of my favorite times of year. Shopping for the most stylish supplies, showing off my fresh new Jansport, mapping out my first day of classes, comparing schedules with my best friends — back to school season was my jam. But not all kids are as excited by loose leaf and standard curriculum the way I am, and some kids might need an extra push to help them get fired up about going back to school. Luckily, there are plenty of books to help your child get excited to go back to school — which is basically a genius way to encourage your kids, because you're knocking out two tasks with one activity. Engaging your children in reading and boosting their morale about the upcoming school season.
Whether your kid is a bibliophile or only reads when books are put in front of them, there's a book on this list that will get your child excited about getting back to school. A new lunchbox may not do the trick, and they might not be sold on that 120 pack of Crayola beauties being designated specifically for school use, but the following books will have your children turning pages and preparing with the other back to school enthusiasts like me. Because when all else fails, literature comes through.
