Books ease kids' worries about going to school

The Columbus Metropolitan Library has compiled a list of books about starting school. Books can help ease kids' worries about going to school, according to child experts.

The list includes books geared to children entering preschool through Grade 4. The list can be found online at cap4kids.org/columbus/files/2012/05/Starting-School-20111.pdf.

Parents also can help make the transition easier by talking about school at home, visiting the classroom or taking children to orientation.
