It's an exciting time in our household as it is for many of you too. It's the end of the school year. There are only a few weeks left and my little girl will be "graduating" from Preschool. I'm super excited and sad at the same time. I'm thrilled that she will be moving on to kindergarten but sad that we will be leaving our school "home" behind. We have been friends with a group since she was a baby and have all gone to the same preschool together for 3 years. Next year will be full of opportunities. We will meet new people and make new friends but it will be hard to leave our old school behind.

To mark this momentous occasion I have found these books that would make great "graduation" gifts. I plan to get The Little Engine That Could for my daughter. It's a great story of going through life's peaks and valleys and teaches children to always believe in themselves.

You've got your whole life ahead of you.
The road may be bumpy,
but at the end of the day
you'll see the light,
and you just might
find yourself on top of the world!

by Craig Dorfman
A book for all the stops in your life.
I knew you could and you knew it too.
That you'd come out on top
After all you've been through.
And from here you'll go further
And see brand new sights,
You'll face brand new hills
That rise to new heights.

Come along with The Little Engine That Could on a journey through life's peaks and valleys. The Little Engine That Could reminds children to always believe in themselves.

For new graduates, here is a profound insight, bold inspiration, and truly ensloxifying advice. Also an occasional hippo. No Wombats.

You're on your way.......moving up and moving on. Here's the book to remind you that....
When your kite is flying high, when your ducks are all in a row, when your soaring to the stars,
when you hit a bump in the road, get a bump on your head, keep on moving.

by Bernard Waber
There are so many kinds of courage. Awesome kinds. And everyday kinds. Still, courage is courage------whatever kind.

In this beautifully illustrated book, Peter H. Reynolds inspires readers to observe, to wonder, and to consider diverging from the well-worn path-----to follow their dreams.

And so the journey begins.......................

They are all so cute and fitting for this time in our little ones lives. They are also great for anytime, for any age. There's no better gift. It encourages reading while giving some inspiration along the way.

Have a wonderful weekend!
