Adorable First Day of Kindergarten Books

Apr 11, 2022

Kindergarten may seem a bit scary and new to your little one, but with the help of fun, accessible stories that show the joys of the class experience, your child's worries will disappear! These books will get your child excited for what's to come.

For instance, in Clifford Goes to Kindergarten, it's Emily Elizabeth's first day of kindergarten — and she can't help but feel nervous. Thankfully, her teacher gives students permission to bring something from home to make the day easier (but she didn't expect Emily to bring something as big as Clifford!).

Find more expert-approved kindergarten books, tips, and resources at our guide to getting ready for kindergarten. Plus, the end of the year will be here before you know it — take a peek at these kindergarten graduation read-aloud books.
