    Back to School with Mac is a happy and comforting book for all young children, but particularly those who are a little nervous about entering preschool, kindergarten or any new grade at school. The poetic writing by Kim DiLoreto is fast-paced and fun, and it is enhanced by the vibrant illustrations of Alvina Kwong. Mac – the toy character that comes with the book, will work his magic in your home in the last weeks of summer and become a back-to-school tradition for your family for years to come.

    My kids are still a little young for this book, but I intend to take Mac with me on my travels to get some pictures in interesting locations to enhance the magic. My 2year old enjoyed the story and I think Mac could be a good friend to make school enjoyable.

    My youngest of three girls just finished Kindergarten and missed being home most days. Right before school ended for the summer she got Mac!!! So far Mac has spent his time on our summer adventures and she can hardly wait for the first day of first grade to get here so she can tell him all about it!
    Thanks for the excitement Mac! This Mom is feeling great about our next school year!

    What an exciting book to have in our home as we begin to think upon the return to school. Thank you for the creative gift of Mac.

    Mac was a huge success in our house!! I anticipated my 4 year old would enjoy it the most, and was pleasantly surprised when my 8 year old showed the most enthusiasm!! Finding something that all 3 children (ages 4,6,8) can enjoy together is not easy, so when Back to School with Mac elicited such a reaction, I deem it a great success! A MUST HAVE for families with young children, helping ease their anxieties when you’re not there!

    Mac was a big hit with my 5 and 8 year old boys. My 5 year old will be entering kindergarten in the Fall and while he is excited, he’s also a little nervous, he loves reading about Mac and likes to hold his Mac stuffy while we read. Must have for school aged kids!

    As a third grade teacher, I see lots of kids who worry about the unknown. Transitioning from grade to grade means BIG CHANGE and change is hard for kids and teachers. I was excited to receive Kim’s book in June just as our 3rd grade year was ending. I read the book to my class and used it to open the discussion about saying good-bye to each other. They loved the book, especially the kids, dog, and Mac! Many opened up about their fears for the coming school year and were comforted to know that their feelings were shared by others. I plan to share the book with my new batch of third graders on the first day of school!!!

    As a second grade teacher, I am always looking for new resources to use at the beginning of every school year. Back to School with Mac is truly engaging to all elementary students. They all loved the book and in turn felt comfortable talking about their concerns about the upcoming school year. We laughed out loud as we read the book. Such a relatable character which allowed us to get the conversation going. Set us up for a perfect start to the school year. I highly recommend Back to School with Mac for elementary and pre-school students (and parents too).
