Book Review- The Night Before Kindergarten

By Natasha WIng
Illustrated by Julie Durrell
Published by Grosset & Dunlap
Released on July 2001
4 stars- Great Read

"Twas the night before kindergarten, and as they prepared, kids were excited and a little bit scared. They tossed and they turned about in their beds, while visions of school supplies danced in their heads."

It's almost the first day of school, and kids all over town are getting ready for it. What will kindergarten be like? Will the teacher be nice? Will they still get to play? Anticipation and excitement are in the air as they head off to school, where they discover just how much fun kindergarten really is! (taken from the book's cover)

This book was a huge hit in our house last week. Reading this the night before my son went to kindergarten helped calm his jitters a little bit. He enjoyed seeing what the kids did to get ready for school. He was very excited when the teacher read this book to the class the first day of school.

It's written in a memorable style and goes along with the song, "The Night Before Christmas." I definitely recommend this for parents with kindergarteners and to teachers who teach kindergarten. It's a great addition to your book collection.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
