Kindergarten Books

Kindergarten is all about getting kids ready for elementary school. But how do you get your kids ready for kindergarten? These books can help ease first-day-of-school jitters by showing kids the lay of the land -- classroom, cubbies, and playground. They'll be reassured as they see kids, animal characters, or even monsters having fun, making new friends, and returning home to share all they've learned.
