I placed all of the books in the basket and then decorated it with this ADORABLE Back to School Countdown from Crafty Confessions! I know the kids will love to countdown the days until school and will most likely argue over who gets to switch the number on the countdown everyday!
Here are some of the books I included, but not ALL!
D.W.'s Guide to Preschool by Marc Brown
First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg
Mule School by Julian Rawlinson
Brand-new Pencils, Brand-new Books by Diane de Groat

I will be featuring some of these titles in upcoming posts the next few weeks!
I left our book basket on the kitchen table during breakfast this morning. It helped us get into an exciting conversation about the first days of school!
My six year old asked if there were 14 books in the basket. When I told him there were more than 14 he told me we should read two a day until school starts! His mind works just like mine sometimes!
I don't have enough books for two a day so we will be going to the library sometime this week. They both have been very interested in looking up books on the computer and then finding them on the shelves at the library. Hopefully, we will find a bunch of great school books, or enough to have 28 books in our basket!
And, I will leave you with one of my favorite books when I was little! My School by Peter Spier is a school shaped book that introduces the reader to two different classrooms. One page has pictures and names for all of the students in the classroom. I have recently read this with my boys and they love the pictures! I love sharing old favorites with my kids!
