First Day of Kindergarten

The first day of kindergarten is approaching quickly and for many children the first day of school, particularly kindergarten is a cause of anxiety. Here are a few books to read with your soon-to-be kindergartner that may help ease them into the hustle and bustle of school:

Although kindergarten provides unique challenges for a young buffalo, one who follows the rules and tries his best will get along fine.

A brother and sister describe the things they love to do during their day at kindergarten.

Annalina's diary entries reflect her feelings and experiences as she goes from being afraid to go to kindergarten to loving it during her first month of school.

A boy visits the classroom where he will attend kindergarten the following fall and finds out what is in store for him.

Dexter knows everything there is to know about kindergarten and is not at all scared about his first day there, but his stuffed dog, Rufus, is very nervous.
