back to school

Back to School Thorndyke

Hey Kids,

I hope you all had a fabulous first day of school. Going to school is a big deal, even if it's not the first time. It can be exciting and fun or a little bit scary with potential problems. I put together a back-to-school playlist of sorts, full of books about the fun of going to school and overcoming whatever challenges might present themselves. Stop by and see me to let me know how your new school year is going!

Bear Hugs,

Thorndyke

This is the story of a persistent problem and the child who isn't so sure what to make of it. The longer the problem is avoided, the bigger it seems to get. It's a story to inspire you to look closely at that problem and to find out why it's here. Even though we don't always want them, problems have a way of bringing unexpected gifts.
