I came across these titles when our son, Tate, came home with his first Scholastic Book Order form.  He’s in Junior Kindergarten and his first few weeks adjusting to school were rough.  I wish I would have known of these titles before he started.  For both him and his little siblings, it would have given us something to talk about prior to starting school.

If you know of some great titles, please share!  Just add a comment below to grow this list.
