The Day You Begin is such a beautiful back to school story to remind children of what it feels to be left out for a variety of reasons and also it is a great conversation starter on ideas your child can implement to make sure they don’t say hurtful things to class members and that they take the time to include and really get to know classmates that are different from them.
So, first I would love for you and your children to enjoy the story time!
How great was that?!
Now here are some questions to ask your children after the story is over!
Enjoy these additional printable activities to compliment the story and prepare for back to school!
