5-A-Day Books: Starting Preschool

With Little Chick starting preschool this week our 5-a-day books are also around this theme.


This is a lovely collection of stories all about new experiences.  The illustrations, like all Stephen Cartwright's, are brilliantly funny with lots of things going on to keep adults and children alike entertained.  We're reading the going to school story this week.  We're also reading the going to the doctor story as Little Chick really wanted this one too.


Another lovely Spot story, with simple text, lovely pictures and flaps for little fingers.  Little chick particularly likes that Spot enjoys 'hand printing' like her.


Charlie and Lola book; these books are lovely with a really different style of graphics, images and text.  They add lovely variety to the books we read and are great stories too.  In this one Lola's not sure she's big enough to go to school.


Here is another Shirley Hughes book. We love the Alfie stories, so thought we'd try this one from the library, seeing as it linked with our theme. It's more about going to 'proper school' but a lovely story nonetheless.

There are lots of books out there about starting preschool/school and I'd love to know which ones you recommend.

We've linked up at:
