Starting school or daycare is an exciting transition for young children. To help ease your little one into it smoothly we've enlisted the help of Amelia Lush, Children's Book Buyer at Better Read than Dead, to share some great books that deal with the topic of starting school and trying new things: My Friend Ernest - Emma Allen, Starting School - Jane Godwin, When I Grow Up - Andrew Daddo & Jonathan Bentley, Marshall Armstrong is New to Our School - David McIntosh Marshall.

We also talk to Jackie Hall, Founder of the Parental Stress Centre of Australia with some tips on how parents can manage stress and enjoy their transition into parenthood.
