LOVE this book! It is so fun and colorful and is such a great way to introduce children to all the things they might see and do at school. I also love it because it’s interactive. It not only asks children about what they see in the pictures, but it also asks them questions about themselves, like what letter their first name starts with and what they would pack in their own lunchbox.
If you think your kids are a mess when you take them shopping then you will feel so much better after you read this book to your children. The Aardvarks go back-to-school shopping and completely destroy the shoe store, the toy store, the candy store and every store in between. They do end up seeing how messy they have been and help clean everything up and do eventually leave, but not before reminding the storekeepers that they will be back next fall.
Harry takes his bucket of dinosaurs to school on the first day of school, but leaves them outside his classroom with the lunches and coats because he’s too shy to ask if he can bring them inside the classroom. Harry is not enjoying his day without his dinosaurs until he finds another friend who is also having a not-so-great day. It turns out that they both LOVE dinosaurs and it also turns out that their teacher loves dinosaurs, too. This would be a great read for any child who loves dinosaurs. It would also be a great story for a child starting preschool or kindergarten soon.
Such a cute book about all the things teachers can’t do. They can’t clean the blackboard by themselves or buy their own apples. They can’t be tardy or teach without flowers on their desk. They never run out of smiley face stickers and they can’t wait to come back to school the next day. A great book for the days leading up to school starting.
These kids are tossing and turning, but they have visions of school supplies dancing in their heads.
This story follows the children through their first day of kindergarten with the familiar rhythm of a favorite Christmas story. There are tears, but you might be surprised who ends up crying…and it’s not the children.
This book follows Lucy as she counts down the days to kindy by practicing her ABC’s, counting and writing her name until finally it is the night before kindy and she drifts off to sleep counting kindergarten sheep. A cute rhyming countdown to kindergarten that focuses on all of the fun things that kindergarten can bring.
Buffalo is having a hard time his first day of kindergarten. He is having trouble using his scissors correctly, he’s a little too big to swing on the swings, he’s a little messy with the paint and he gets a little mad when someone calls him Fluppalo. He is very good at helping make really tall towers though. No matter what he is good at or not so good at, everyone is special in their own way, and that’s what buffalo learns in kindergarten.
Annie is looking forward to all of the adventures she is going to have in kindergarten. She puts her walkie-talkies, her high wire slippers, and her zookeeper hat in her backpack just in case. Once Annie actually gets to kindergarten she finds that her teacher doesn’t want her to be quite as “adventurous” as she is used to being. Annie does end up having an adventure, however, when two of her classmates get sent to fetch the milk for snack time and don’t return. Adventure Annie saves the day!!!
