"MY SCHOOL STARTS in one week soI 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 book is a good read for the up and coming kindergarten child, especially girls, as the character is a little girl. The book is layed out in a positive language that builds excitement for the new student without discussing the anxieties that come with the first day of school. The author lays the book out in seven days, which did not line up with my great niece or grand-daughter, who I purchased a copy. Maybe this should be an interactive part of the book for the reader to assign the days of the week to the seven days prior to school starting making it more about them and their actual first day, building more excitement. I don't know if the days of the week are important to the children or not, but as the reader, it bothered me that the days did not match exactly. Oh well, great positive read for a positive start to a new school year/career!

My children simply love Linda Davick's art more than any other artist who illustrates children's books. So happy to see she has a new book out!
