"MY SCHOOL STARTS in one week so—I have SEVEN DAYS to go. Mom says be patient, do not worry. But I can't wait! I'm in a hurry!"In this delightful book a little girl counts off the days by naming what she'll do in kindergarten. "I'll be ready, I'll be smart. I will get a running start. I'll say thank you, I'll say please. I will say my ABCs!" And deciding what to wear and what to take are all part of her preparation for that exciting first day. With bouncy read-aloud rhyme, bright, fun illustrations, and hidden objects to find on each page, Kindergarten Countdown gets children off on the right foot.
This cheerful story is just right for kindergarten-bound children and their younger siblings. It works equally well as a counting book and as a school-readiness primer. Often leaping or prancing, a little girl shares her excitement on every page as she starts with seven and counts down to the big day. Both the rhyming verse and the pictures are filled with humor and energy (the sleeping child counts "kindergarten sheep" that wear school backpacks). The computer-generated illustrations are detailed and vibrant. Because the format is small, this book is most appropriate for one-on-one sharing.
