Ready, Set, Kindergarten!
Preparing for kindergarten is a huge step for young children. This encouraging tale of a child's experience touches on the many milestones towards this big goal. The little girl narrator counts out plates when she helps Dad set the table. She calls out letters when she walks down the street with Mom. She even helps her stuffies say sorry after they fight. And with a little help from Mom, Dad, her cat, and faithful stuffed mouse, she's now ready for her new adventure ... kindergarten! In simple, clear language, Ayer conveys the inner thoughts of a young girl excited about starting school. Arbour's bright, cheery illustrations are the perfect antidote to any preschooler's jitters. Parents and children will enjoy reading Ready, Set, Kindergarten! together as they talk about the skills needed for entering kindergarten.
