While starting kindergarten is a new adventure for both children and parents alike, there are a number of ways you can help prepare your child for an enriching experience — whether they’re learning remotely or in-person.
One great strategy is to introduce your child to a popular book series for kindergarteners, in which they can develop a deeper understanding of characters they love and expand their reading skills as the series progresses.
“Children are naturally drawn to dive into a collection of linked books, like these collections for kindergarteners,” says Karen Baicker, publisher for Family and Community Engagement (FACE) at Scholastic. “That’s one reason book series are so popular, and why they help kids read more.”
While you’ll initially need to read to or along with your kindergartener, a series can offer support and motivation as your child gradually moves toward independent reading.
