Summer Reading Lists (good for mid-year, too!)

Going into Kindergarten

Going into Kindergarten:
Starting kindergarten can be a very exciting event for you and your child. This list has been assembled to help you find some great books for and about kindergartners.
Since reading together nurtures a lasting love of books, we have included favorites that are especially good for reading aloud. Many are available as recordings or downloads—great for car trips!
We hope you’ll use our list as a springboard to all the books you will read this summer.
