In this book, readers get two books. One is an alphabet book, counting down the days before the first day of Kindergarten, and the second is an activities book, providing the anxious/excited child activities to both entertain and teach.
Author Erin Dealey weaves together poetry and kindergarten activities in the countdown.
“C is for crayons and coloring.
How creative can you be?
Glitter, scissors, paste, and yarn—
make some art for all to see!”
Each page includes a Kinder Countdown and a Kinder Challenge introducing or reviewing, depending upon your child, kindergarten basics, like the ABC Song, drawing, jump roping and music.
The illustrations are rich, colorful and right on target to capture the emotions leading up to starting school.This book is a delight to the ear and eye and includes pages of interactive things to do.
