10 Adorable Books That Get Kids Excited About Kindergarten

Apr 23, 2021

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 little one 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!).

Meanwhile, in the beloved book Tool School, a hammer, saw, tape measure, screwdriver, and pair of pliers are all excited for their very first day of tool school! They have fun playing games together, but when it comes time to build, they all split up and work by themselves. The tools soon learn that working together is how they'll get this task done.
