The Best Children’s Books About School

It’s that time of year–Time for school to start back! Once the new school supplies start appearing on store shelves, it really feels like fall. We are experiencing many changes this year as we transition from homeschool to college with our oldest, while the other two continue to learn at home. For the first time in 13 years, we won’t have anyone in elementary school. It’s sad to pack away the counting bears and printing books, but we still have time for lots of reading aloud. Kids never get too old for that special time.
To celebrate this fun season of growth and learning, we are sharing our favorite books about school. Our list is a bit unique, because we are including books about all kinds of school–from homeschool, to the one-room schoolhouse, to traditional classrooms, and even padawan training. Enjoy!
