New Book for Both Parents & Children About School Readiness

strwie_coverKindergarten is a big transition, and while some kids take it in stride, others have a pretty tough time.

This daunting rite of passage is exactly why Christine Bronstein, daughter of Borders Books co-founder Louis Borders, penned Stewie Boomstein Starts School;  a new book for both kids and their parents to help ease the transition into kindergarten.

From the Publisher:

Stewie Boomstein is a loud, comical, and sometimes cranky child, who has a big problem: he had a very bad first day of school! His entire family (including the pets) works together to solve Stewie’s problem. The next day, Stewie has a very good day at school. This illustrated book includes an interview with two well-regarded child psychologists who give simple tips and practical advice to parents on smoothing their children’s transition into school.


Divided into two parts, Stewie Boomstein Starts School starts with an engaging illustrated story for kids ages 3-6.  The second portion of the book is geared toward parents with concrete tips on what parents can do to help their kids from child and education specialists.


Stewie Boomstein Starts School is available at Barnes & Noble and
