A Twist on a New School Supply

A suggestion today...

Why not make a stop at the bookstore while you are out buying school supplies, new tennis shoes, and any other "beginning of the school year" items?

Frame it as yet another essential part of going back to school. Tell them that you know the first days will be full of new and exciting things, and a book will be a great item to take with them.

Or better yet, wrap a book and stick it in their backpacks as a surprise when they get to school...write a note to say you are thinking of them and wanted them to have a book as a way to tell them you are proud of them starting a new grade...that book will be a treasure, and a link to home if they are scared.

I think I may have to email my parents to see if they want to do it! Thoughts?
