Is your child entering kindergarten? Here are children’s books about kindergarten to help with the transition.
For my son, August and September means not only the start of a new school year, but the start of a new school: kindergarten.
Kids vary in how they anticipate kindergarten. Some can’t wait to attend his new school and is just about done with preschool. Others might face kindergarten with trepidation, wary of its newness: faces, routines, buildings.
Deep down though, all kids feel a jumble of emotions about kindergarten, no matter how much they appear to lean towards one. A child could be so excited for school but may still harbor some hesitation as well.
It’s all normal. Thankfully we can turn to our trusty friends on the shelves to see just how widely these kindergarten experiences vary. From clinging to the door because they don’t want to leave the house to realizing that teachers are also just as nervous as them, the characters in these pages remind kids that they’re not alone with kindergarten.
