There’s only 10 days left until school starts, and I can’t hardly wait to see my best friends Jona and Ginger Gold again! Yesterday, my mom and I went on a big shopping extravaganza to buy all the supplies and clothes I would need for the new school year. After what felt like 30 gazillion hours of shopping, we stopped at our last store to buy a new backpack. We didn’t have to do much searching for the new pack because sitting on display at the front of the store was the coolest backpack I had ever seen! It had all my favorite colors (yellow and blue) and lots of zippers and compartments where I could put all my books and supplies.
Have you bought a new backpack for this year? If you haven’t, here are a few things to consider when you pick it out:
1. Look for a lightweight pack with lots of compartments to help distribute the weight of books and supplies.
2. Find a backpack with a padded back to increase comfort and keep sharp objects like your scissors from poking through the fabric.
3. Make sure the pack has two wide, padded straps and a waist strap.
4. Consider the size of the backpack to the size of you. If your backpack is too big, it may be too heavy when you carry it which might make your back hurt!
