(CNN) — Back to school means back to lugging around unwieldy backpacks for schoolkids, but many little ones who want to be just like their older siblings and role models love the idea of carrying their prized possessions on their backs.
CNN asked its iReport community for photos of children carrying backpacks, whether they were returning to class, starting school for the first time or simply heading to Grandma’s house for babysitting.
Some of the best shots we received featured tiny tots who wouldn’t think of leaving home without their colorful satchels, filled with a change of clothes, a favorite toy or snacks for the road.
