Starting School or Nursery?

If your child is worried about starting school or nursery, take a look at the Starting School booklist on the Under 6s pages of the Virtual Library.  Its a useful mix of fiction and non-fiction picture books - just click on the titles you are interested in to see which libraries have copies, or use your child's card to request them for free.
