Get Set for Kindergarten: a book series

I saw this trio of books at the library the other day and thought they would be a valuable resource to anyone with children who are preschool/kindergarten age. Rosemary Wells is one of my favorite author/ illustrators and I hope you enjoy them. You can read the book without doing the suggested extension activities, but these would be great for a student who is ready for “The Next Step” as the book has stated. I have only listed three, but there are more books in the series to enjoy.

In The World Around Us children learn about communities, community helpers, holidays, and maps.

Adding it Up introduces the concepts of addition, money, simple fractions, graphs, and patterns.

Letters and Sounds introduces not only the alphabet, but also rhyming words and syllabication.

  1. Lisa, we have a Max and Ruby book that I read aloud during our Ancient History year… something about Max and Ruby and Pandora’s box. We love it, and I’ve always wondered if Max and Ruby have other stories tied to an historical time period.
