7 Picture Books to Read Before Kindergarten Starts!
July 13, 2021
Yes, it’s STILL summer, but this is a list of before-school-starts picture books.
Like you, we LOVE the wonderful “tried and true” back-to-school books like THE KISSING HAND and THE NAME JAR, and newish ones like ALL ARE WELCOME and SCHOOL’S FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL, but have you checked these out?
In this BRAND NEW bilingual picture book (releasing July 15, 2021) Isabel, whose first language is Spanish, doesn’t speak much English and is worried about her first day at Honeytree Elementary School. During coloring time, she discovers there are many ways to communicate and make new friends.
(Q & A Birthday Blog coming SOON!)
This is a fun read for almost-Kinders who are about to go “boldly where they have never gone before!”
Jacqueline Woodson is one of my #kidlit heroes and this book is wonderful! Need I say more?
This rhymed picture book book gives almost-Kinders and parents & caregivers a book full of Kinder Countdown activities to do as they wait for Kindergarten to start, and Kinder Challenges to do throughout the year.
Burris’ sweet book takes almost-kinders through the day and gives them a reassuring look at what to expect.
I can relate to the energy and excitement of this almost-Kinder kid
as she counts down SEVEN more days until school starts.
As you probably know, I LOVE rhymed picture books
(those with solid scansion and rhyme)
and this one fits the bill.
Also–KindergartenMe approves of this list!
Happy Reading with your ALMOST-KINDERGARTENER too!
