Life skills for little ones - starting school or nursery

Jane Mellor, early years librarian writes ‘Over the summer, many of you will be working with families who have children preparing to make the transition into new settings in September. It can be a time of great anxiety for both parents and children.

Hertfordshire libraries have plenty of picture books that can prepare children for this big change in their life and help to dispel any worries or fears they may have. Check out the titles attached which are all available to reserve from our website.

Don’t forget to encourage children to join the Space Chase which is this year’s Summer Reading Challenge. It is a fantastic way to help develop a love of reading as well as a great foundation for children starting school.’
