Hey Kidsreaders!

I hope you have had a terrific summer so far, and are starting to get excited about going to back to school (or being back in school, if you’ve started already). I know what you’re thinking…excited? But seriously, I always think there’s a slight thrill to a new year --- you get to see your friends every day, maybe make some new ones, possibly meet a teacher or take a class that will push you in a whole new direction, and have a chance to start fresh. Plus, there is seriously no greater joy than buying new school supplies. Eight different colors of highlighters, elastics shaped like animals, new folders for your binder…what could be better? (I personally was a big fan of Lisa Frank as a kid --- see the picture on top to get an idea of the blindingly neon contents of my backpack).

Kidsreads Newsletter for Parents


I hope that you’re having a terrific end of the summer, and that your kids are getting excited (or at least not kicking and screaming) about going back to school, if they haven’t started, already! I know…getting back into the routine is never simple.

One great way to ease into the new year is school supply shopping --- as a kid, nothing made me more excited than a chance to roam the aisles and pick out new highlighter packs, elastics shaped like animals and folders for my binders (especially if they were covered in multi-colored leopards and golden retrievers, a la Lisa Frank...look above to see what I mean).
