As the summer comes to a close, it’s time to start thinking about the next big step— preschool! For many children, the first day of preschool is a big milestone. It’s a time when they begin to learn to socialize with other kids and start to develop their own independent skills.

But entering pre-school is also a big adjustment stage for both children and their parents. It’s a time when children get excited to see their friends, learn new things, and explore the classroom. But it’s also a time when they may feel the first pangs of separation. It’s a time when parents are excited to see their kids experience new things. But it’s also a time when they begin to feel anxious about the idea of sending their child to a new environment and a new group of kids.

As parents, we want to make sure our children have the best start possible. With a little preparation, the transition to preschool can be a smooth one for the whole family. And before you know it, you’ll be celebrating all the amazing milestones your child will achieve!

And so, one of our neighbors is here to share a very timely back-to-school resource called The First 12 Days of Preschool, which is both a book and a song, to help our kids overcome the anxiety of starting school for the first time.

Award-Winning Children’s Author Jeanette Crystal Bradley joins our John Masiulionis for Episode #156 of PR From the Heart’s Children’s Book Spotlight Series to talk about how parents can help their kids with their expectations, fears, and insecurities, how to integrate more joy into our lives, what can help adults reconnect with their inner child, and how to make sure that our kids are ready to face the world as a whole.

We encourage you, our fellow neighbors, to support Jeanette by purchasing your copy of The First 12 Days of Preschool, and enjoying this empowering read with your little ones: 📖
