It's coming up to that time of year again and I've been looking at books about starting secondary school. There are lots of picture books for kids joining nursery or reception, but fewer about going up to Year Seven. Here is my initial list but it's a work in progress so please get in touch with any more to add ideas.

You can find those marked with an asterix on The Bookshelf

Just Jack (Kate Scott)*

Jack Dash and the Summer Blizzard (Sophie Plowden)*

The Curse of the Nomed (B B Taylor)*

The Awkward Autumn of Lily MacClean (Lindsay Littleson)*

The Naughtiest Girl in the School (Enid Blyton)

Horrid Henry's Stinkbomb (Francesca Simon)

Harry Potter and the Philospher's Stone (J K Rowling)

The Worst Witch (Jill Murphy)

Night School (C J Daugherty)

I talked about this on BBC Radio Berkshire last week - here is the link if you're interested (The Book Club starts at 1-06-15)  This link will expire in 25 days.
