Kindergarten Readiness

Last summer I found myself feeling a bit unprepared for sending my oldest to kindergarten.  We had missed the kindergarten open house that took place in the spring, and while we were registered before school started, I still wasn’t sure what to expect.  I didn’t know if I had prepared my son enough for what was to come.  I found a list at my library of things to help ensure he was ready and found many things that were quite helpful. I thought I would share them with you!

One-Sit Reads

Tucked away in a corner of the Marguerite deAngeli Children’s Room sits a collection of stories that many library visitors might not know about. The collection is called one-sit reads, and contains everything from real-world, everyday stories to folklore and mythical tales told in longform, descriptive language and pictures. While unknown to many, these titles make a great transition tool for young readers.
