2019 Picture Books: School Stories

School here in Vancouver runs until the end of June, but I know many of you are on the cusp of Summer Reading time. In celebration of another school year past and to give you time to get your orders in for the next school year, I’m sharing 2019 picture books about school today.

When Sophie was about to start kindergarten I checked out every single book about starting school my library holds. I particularly sought out books featuring anxiety about starting school. I am so glad to see more and more books about the school experience hitting the shelves. Here’s what’s coming this year.

See the other posts in my 2019 Picture Books series:
