Book Birthday Bash


Ready or Not, Woolbur Goes to School by Leslie HelakoskiHappy Book Birthday to READY OR NOT, WOOLBUR GOES TO SCHOOL!

In this funny empowering picture book, Woolbur’s eternal optimism faces off against the worries of going to school for the first time.

We’re so happy you’re at our party for READY OR NOT, WOOLBUR GOES TO SCHOOL. Join in the fun…


Woolly Bully and other nursery songs about the barn yard.


Cupcakes with lots of green icing to mimic grass.


School yard games like Four Square, Hopscotch, and Jump rope.


A School Readiness checklist and a set of jax with a good super bouncy ball (not those spongy red ones that come with a set).

READY OR NOT, WOOLBUR GOES TO SCHOOL is written by Leslie Helakoski and published by Sterling Children’s Books. You can buy this book at the retailers below…
