September's book bag was all about Back-to-School this year, since we had a big milestone in our house... the first day of Kindergarten for the first kid! These four books were our very favorites!Kindergarten Diary / Antoinette Portis – A fun journal-style story from the perspective of a slightly wary first-time Kindergartner, that shows that her class is all alright... Love this one! Compares fears and reality is a funny, light-hearted manner. We bought this one.
Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten? / Audrey Vernick –Sweet and silly. Perfect.
The Night Before Kindergarten / Natasha Wing – nice rhyming tie-in to the classic "Night Before..." and a good intro to going off to Kindy. M's preschool teacher even gave a copy to us as a "graduation" gift.
First Day Jitters / Julie Danneberg – Fabulously funny, especially as you follow the main character through her whole morning (reluctantly getting ready), before you discover that she's a teacher at a new school! This made the kids laugh out loud! We bought this one in our Scholastic order.
