Another one of my favorites was Owen. Owen loves his blankie and takes it everywhere with him. The meddling neighbor, Mrs. Tweezers, thinks he is too old to still have his blanket. Mom finally agrees when it is time for Owen to start school. They come up with a great compromise.
I loved this book because I also had a special blanket. While I didn't take it to school, it did accompany me on overnights and vacations until I lost it at the age of 13.
In Wemberley Worried, the title character is afraid of everything. She worries about everything, even things that seem completely ridiculous to adults. She is especially worried about starting school. Once she gets there, though, she meets someone else who is just as worried as she is. She decides that perhaps she doesn't need to waste so much time worrying, after all!
