My mom used to celebrate the start of the school year by singing “September, September, I love you September” to the tune of Tomorrow from the musical Annie. Now school starts in August for Waltham students…and judging by the number of fun school stories out there the start of school is fun for more than moms and dads. Among others there are the Wayside School series by Louis Sachar for 5th-6th grade level readers and the My Weird School series by Dan Gutman for 3rd-4th grade level readers. Younger readers can enjoy school stories by authors such as Miriam Cohen and we have a bunch of books for those just starting school or pre-school. If school gets too serious we also have school joke books at the call number j818.54.
