Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
"Tim, Come meet your kindergarten teacher on Thursday at 3 o'clock." In Anne Rockwell's Welcome to Kindergarten, Tim visits his new classroom before the start of school. After working in the science center, making "things out of wet and squishy clay, playing ball outside and having a cookie with a new friend," Tim discovers that his new classroom is not too big after all, but "just the right size for me." ( Apr.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Young readers can join Tim as he visits his future kindergarten class. The classroom looks very big, but his mother says it's just big enough to learn all sorts of things. He explores the science, cooking, reading and art centers. He discovers all the things he will be doing and learning in the coming year. As he leaves, he looks back and sees that the building isn't too big after all, but just the right size for him. Preschoolers will find this book a reassuring look at a typical kindergarten classroom. The transition to kindergarten is a big adjustment for most children, even for those who have been in preschool a couple of years. The text is simple with just a few lines on each page, and is perfectly complemented by beautiful, full-page color paintings. A perfect book for a preschool classroom discussion of what kindergarten will be like. 2001, Walker Publishing, $16.85 and $15.95. Ages 3 to 5. Reviewer: Cheryl Peterson
School Library Journal
PreS-K-A veteran author of books for the very young, Rockwell has produced a quiet, reassuring look at kindergarten routines. A little boy and his mother attend an open house, and he discovers all of the fascinating classroom centers and the activities that he will be doing in each one when September arrives. After finding a new friend and sharing cookies, he goes home contentedly with his mother, thinking that the school building doesn't look too big at all anymore, but seems "-just the right size for me!" The story is enhanced by simple, bright, and uncluttered illustrations that look like a young child's artwork-a perfect fit for the text. Although there are many titles about starting kindergarten, this one is just right to share one-on-one with an apprehensive four- or five-year-old.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
