Children's LiteratureBefore children go to kindergarten they accomplish many things. All the accomplishments of every age from newborn to five is outlined. From drinking juice from a red sippy cup to getting a big bed, from pedaling a tricycle to blowing bubbles—children learn so many things as they grow up. By age five, they are ready for kindergarten and can do all sorts of things. This book falls into the category of a "children's book written more for grown-ups than children." Despite the title, kindergarten only comes into the story on the very last page. Also, the last line implies that ALL children go to kindergarten at age five, which is not the case. The poetry does not always follow the same cadence or rhyme structure. The plot is very thin and a bit too syrupy for children to ever really enjoy. 2006, G.P. Putnam's Sons/Penguin, Ages 4 up.
