Christine Bronstein - Stewie Boomstein Starts School

Christine Bronstein and illustrator Karen Young team up to bring children and parents a great new read-aloud in Stewie Boomstein Starts School.

The book begins as a fun story about Stewie Boomstein—a loud, sometimes cranky, funny boy—who has a very bad day at school and how he and his family overcome his problem. In the second half of the book, there is a parent tips section, which includes concrete tips for parents from our interviews with two renowned child and education specialists. Stewie Boomstein Starts School is aimed to help parents and children smooth the transition into school. 

Christine Bronstein is the founder of A Band of Women and their publishing house, Nothing But the Truth Publishing. Based on her experience with her own children, and her interviews with child specialists, Stewie Boomstein Starts School is about dealing with the fear of the unknown that many children feel on their first day of school and how parents can help turn this often traumatic transition into an exciting journey and familial bonding experience.

Karen Young is a Rhode Island School of Design alum and an art therapist. She moved next door to Christine in 2013, and fell in love with the story. She wishes this book had been available when her daughter Grace began pre-school, and feels confident it will help other parents with the transition.
