The Tale of Starting School Book


This award-winning book helps positively prepare children for starting school.

The Tale familiarises children with their new school and routines before they begin by taking and sticking in their own photographs, colouring and filling in the blanks. By personalising their own book the story becomes about each child’s unique experience of starting school making them easily relate to the changes ahead.

The Tale answers many questions children have such as;

Who will my teacher be? What does my classroom look like? Where will I eat lunch? Who will take me to school and pick me up?

Once complete the book makes sure that children are ready to start, ready to learn and most importantly ready to have fun and enjoy school! The book’s thoughtful design means the Tale also becomes a treasured keepsake that safely holds memories of a special time.

Why not add 'The Tale of My School Adventures' to your order so you can keep all their memories of primary school together in one beautiful book!

You can get started right now by using our helpful list of photographs in our ‘Downloads’ list (HERE) that you’ll need to have for when your Tale arrives!

Lovely book

A really lovely book, really helped my son with starting reception. We looked at it while having breakfast a few weeks before school started and I think it really helped. Really good artwork inside. Going to order the Tales of School Adventure.

I’m so glad I bought this book. This book differs from other starting school books in that it’s interactive so kids can fill and colour sections in meaning they are more engaged. My daughter loved filling the book in and kept asking to look at it in the run up to starting school (we are in Scotland so terms starts mid Aug). This book also concentrates on areas about the school that kids are particularly concerned about, e.g. where the toilets are, what happens at lunch, where they can play, etc. The quality of the book is amazing too, it’s such good value. I was so impressed I bought another book for my nephew and will also be getting the ‘school adventures’ book.

Wonderful books

We have bought copies of the tale of starting school and my school adventures and both books are just wonderful. They are such good quality and the drawings and pictures are beautiful. They are such a brilliant way to prepare your little one for school and also a great keepsake to collect and store memories. Just fabulous. Customer service along the way has been brilliant as well. Have recommended to many friends!
