Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten by Joseph Slate, Ashley Wolff, Natalie Moore

It's the first day of kindergarten and Miss Bindergarten is hard at work getting the classroom ready for her twenty-six new students. Meanwhile, Adam Krupp wakes up, Brenda Heath brushes her teeth, and Christopher Beaker finds his sneaker. Miss Bindergarten puts the finishing touches on the room just in time, and the students arrive. Now the fun can begin! This rhyming, brightly illustrated book is the perfect way to practice the alphabet and to introduce young children to kindergarten.

"Multifaceted and appealing, this book can be enjoyed in many ways, at home and at school."
-The New York Times Book Review

About the Author

Joseph Slate, a native West Virginian, has always loved to paint and write. "I majored in journalism at the University of Washington in Seattle, worked as a reporter on The Seattle Times, was an editor for Foreign Broadcast Information Service (Washington, D.C., California, and Tokyo), then took a degree in fine arts at Yale, although I never illustrated my own books. My painting took a direction that was at odds with the fine art of illustration."

Ashley Wolff is a children's book author and illustrator in San Francisco, CA. She has created over 40 books.

I bought this book for my granddaughter, several weeks before she entered Kindergarten. She was transfixed by the story, in awe of the colorful pictures and the cadence of the rhyming prose. The concept of the teacher being excited about Kindergarten, as well as the students, helped my granddaughter think of her own teacher as a real person, with feelings. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.

We purchased this book for our 5-year-old granddaughter who is starting Kindergarten. As a school librarian, I had previously read this to our kindergartners. It follows a teacher (a border collie) and her students (portrayed by different animals with alphabet names) as they get ready for school. Lots of fun.

We bought this book for our Grandson, who will be starting Kindergarten this fall. It is a delightful book that I would highly recommend for children who will be starting Kindergarten. I found it made our grandson ask questions about Kindergarten and he now is very excited to attend. A great read for parents, children and grandparents to share together.

My 5 year old loves all of the Mrs Bindergarten books. I purchased this one before Kindergarten, and she just loves it. We read it A LOT, even though she has been in school for a month. It's just a terrific story.

My oldest son will be starting kindergarten next fall and I got this to introduce the prospect to him. This gives us a year to read it over and over to help him overcome any nervousness he may normally have. Good, educational book.

I got this for my 5 year old who was nervous about starting Kindergarten. After seeing how excited the children and teacher were about starting Kindergarten in this book it helped him get more excited and less nervous. This is fun and happy. There is one character who says he doesn't want to go, but by the end of the book even he is seen in the picture enjoying class. It is great how the alphabet ties in without overwhelming the book and taking away the fun. I was pleasantly surprised at how much my son and I enjoy this book.

This book is absolutely a charmer, and one I read repeatedly to my 5-year-old at her request. It manages to be cute, entertaining, and reassuring.

My 5 year old granddaughter and I checked 2 Miss Bindergarten books out from our local library. She absolutely loved the book and now is excited about starting kindergarten in the fall! Very educational while fun! Plan to purchase these books to read over and over! Have a 3 year old coming up soon for school and she enjoyed the books as well.

As a B&N member, I qualify for free express shipping. I ordered two copies of this book on a Monday, and needed them by Friday. I finally received them the following Tuesday - eight days later. Calling customer support got me nowhere. They spent all weekend telling me the system was be updated and would be available soon, and they couldn't do anything to help while it was down. I am very unhappy with B&N customer service, and will definitely not be renewing my membership.

very slow response from BN. I paid extra for express shipping and it still took over 10 days to arrive at its destination.
