Kindergarteners love books! They get swept up in stories with humor or suspense and are equally spellbound by nonfiction books on a variety of topics. Thanks to a PTA voucher I was able to expand our classroom library with some great reads for kindergarten.
Earlier this year I had a parent request for a list of books beloved by the kindergarten age group. Without further ado, here are five kindergarten book series or author suggestions. I will make more suggestions as the school year goes on!
1. Pigeon books by Mo Willems
Pigeon has many hilarious escapades such as Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, and Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog!
2. Elephant and Piggie books by Mo Willems
Also from the comic genius, Mo Willems, this series has simple story lines with a great message. The text is more straight forward so they are very readable for independent readers.
3. It’s Okay to Be Different by Todd Parr
Todd Par books combine open minded and empowering messages for kids with colorful illustrations and humor.
4. The Wall by Eve Bunting
A more serious story that is great for Veteran’s Day.
5. Anything Pete the Cat
Kindergarteners just love Pete the Cat. Adults can appreciate the mellow attitude Pete models for the kids as he survives various wardrobe malfunctions.
