Backpacks come in different sizes and that is for a good reason. A child's age and size will help determine how much weight they can carry. Hopefully this handy school age/grade guide from cafemom.com will help you pick out the right backpack.
For your little one who is just starting off, make sure to purchase a mini-backpack such as
these below. You don't want it too big where they can't wear it comfortably or it becomes
to heavy for them.
