The Night Before Kindergarten

Summary:

There is a lot to do to get ready for Kindergarten, and lots of big feelings to (and not just the kids!). With the cadence of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas we have a story that explains it all.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The rhyming story helps kids understand what Kindergarten is about, describes feelings (Mom and Dad's too, not just theirs), and gives them a fun way to put together the get-ready steps of the morning process.

Content Awareness Factors:

None.


Little Kid Reaction

Our child liked the story and recognized things that go into getting reading for school.
