Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten

Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten

by Joseph Slate Illustrated by Ashley Wolff

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. The use of extinct animals for the more obscure letters only add to the fun.

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

"In this soothing introduction to an anxiety-filled event, Slate makes the first day a pleasure for everyone involved." — Kirkus
