Kindergarten Kids: Riddles, Rebuses, Wiggles, Giggles, and More! by Stephanie Calmenson and Melissa Sweet

My oldest daughter starts kindergarten next month and she is very apprehensive. When I saw this book, I had to pick it up in hopes of getting her excitement level up enough to counteract her nerves. She absolutely loves this book. It’s full of rhymes and she loves finishing them when she can. Her favorite pages are the Halloween pages. Now that she has memorized the rhymes, she likes to give silly answers instead of the correct ones. She cracks me up.

Emma also likes to spell out the word kindergarten using the cover. I can’t say that she’s completely over her fears about going to a new school, but I think she’s developing a pride in joining the ranks of the other big kids.

I would highly suggest this book for parents with children heading to kindergarten (not a big leap based upon the title). I also think that kindergarten teachers might find this useful. It ends with a wonderful poem about being proud of being in kindergarten. I can just see a class of children marching to it and loving who they are.
