Let’s Get Ready For School

‘Let’s Get Ready for School’ is a reassuring guide to what to expect when you start school. It’s written by me and illustrated by Carolina Rabei, and is published by Walker Books (August 2021).

“What will school be like? What will we do there? What if I miss Mummy? Do I have to go?
Jane Porter answers all of these questions and more in this warm, witty and reassuring book for young children that explores everything they’ll need to know before starting school. Marley, Maya, Theo, Akiko, Ella and Zakir are all getting ready to start school. Why not come along with them and see what it’s like? Illustrated with charming characters by Carolina Rabei, this is the perfect introduction to joining a new class.”
