It's back to school time for lots of kids, and it's the perfect time to inspire kids for the new school year ahead. Here are three great back-to-school books:

The hilarious Marco Goes to School is especially good for kids ages 3-8. ($16.99, Simon & Schuster). Written and illustrated by TheNew Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast, there are tons of hidden and not-so-hidden jokes as readers follow Marco to school on his first day. For kids who may be worried about how things will go at school, Marco's ability to have a great time, despite being a bird among children, should put them at ease.

And it's not just birds that can go to school. In Marley Goes to School (HarperCollins), written by Josh Grogan and illustrated by Richard Crowdey, the lovable family dog Marley (from Marley and Me fame) follows Cassie to school on her first day. A fun read, and kids can enjoy imagining what would happen if a dog really came to school. Ages 3+, $17.99.
