If so, you should definitely check out one of the books we’ve been reading lately, My First Day of Kindergarten. My kids were amazed (and it surprised me how excited it got them) that I know the author, Kristen Minuto, a very sweet mother (and teacher) from my town. It makes reading the book so much more exciting for us and my daughter has even exclaimed, “I really love how she writes!”… I’m not kidding!
My kindergarteners are pretty mesmerized when I read it, as they draw comparisons between their classes and routines and the ones they are hearing about as they follow a little boy through his first day of school.
It’s really a bright, colorful and adorable book that I would absolutely recommend. We actually started reading books like this as my kids entered nursery school. I know we’ll be getting a lot of use out of this book as we start talking about kindergarten with my 3-year-old. You can check out My First Day of Kindergarten

Don’t forget how important it is to read to your kids! What children’s books are you reading these days?
