As you prepare your students for the school year ahead, stock up on lovable books about school! Use Clifford, David, and many other favorite characters from popular classroom series to ignite a love for learning in your students.

The titles in this list show young learners that school can be fun and exciting — while also tackling common fears like first-day jitters and fitting in.

For example, If You Give a Mouse: Time for School, Mouse! is a fun picture book about relatable experiences — like finding missing homework before school. These books are perfect for classroom read-alouds all year long.

Spread the joy of reading with the help of a ClassroomsCount™ campaign — Scholastic's easy, free platform for educators to raise funds for their classrooms. Give students a great book to start off the school year strong and stock up on the latest titles to refresh your library.
