One of the great milestones for children and parents is the first day of kindergarten. It has even been said All I Really Need to Know I learned In Kindergarten.
Parents worry and ask: Is my child ready? Will they make friends? Will they be a good students? Will they be able to learn all the things they need to know? Despite all the fears and insecurities, children are excited to be making, what may be, the first big break in the parent/child relationship. To celebrate and support a smooth entry into the schooling experience August is Get Ready for Kindergarten Month. We are highlighting just a few of the engaging children's books about going to kindergarten and books for parents that may ease some of those fears.
So shine up those new shoes, pack the new lunch box, put your tissues and new crayons in the backpack - we're going to KINDERGARTEN!
Annie Grace wears her "Adventure Annie" cape to her first day of kindergarten, and proceeds to barrel through the day, searching for adventure in every moment. Her interpretation of the class's Gold Star Rules isn't exactly what her teacher, Mr. Todd, had in mind. But somehow Annie does manage to save the day when two of her classmates get lost on their way to retrieve the afternoon snack. Spirited and funny, this is an introduction to kindergarten that will please kids and teachers alike.Add a comment
