Annie Grace is ready for her first day of school. Kindergarten may be an adventure, and Annie wants to be prepared. You never know, she might just need her zookeeper hat, her high wire slippers, and walkie talkies into her backpack. When Annie learns about Mr. Todd’s Gold Star Rules, she sets her sights on being the class Gold Star Deputy. When Mr. Todd needs her help to find two classmates, it is Adventure Annie to the rescue.
Adventure Annie is an every-kid kind of Kindergartner who readers will relate to. This is an exceptional choice to read at home in the days leading up to the first day of Kindergarten or in your classroom during that first week of school.
Clever and not at all predictable. I love that this is Annie’s story to tell, making it easy for kids to see themselves in Annie’s shoes. Adventure Annie is anxious – in an excited kind of way – and the author verbalizes her thoughts and feelings with a perfect pitch for a 5-year-old’s thinking.
This is picture book that helps kids have fun thinking about Kindergarten.
There are plenty of “uh-ohs!” that young listeners will anticipate, and opportunities to talk about the different kinds of feelings in the classroom. Louise, for example, has expressions that make her look nervous or shy.
