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!

I brought this as a gift for my Cousin’s LO, who’s starting school this year. Needless to say they both loved it and instantly told me how great it was, alongside thanking me.
Would 100% recommend.
Thank you. Such a great idea.

Brilliant book to help prepare your child

We got this book last year to help prepare our daughter for starting school when there were no visits or transitions due to covid. The school we're happy to provide photos and we read the book regularly. It really helped ease her worries that she had a good idea what to expect and who she would see. The book itself is gorgeous and a wonderful keepsake. Thank you so much!

I really love the creativity that has gone into these books! They're stunning and I cannot wait to start sticking in photos and filling in with my daughter! I love scrapbooks for memories and these books remind me of them, they're lovely and will be treasured. Thank you
