Back of Book: Dexter already knows everything there is to know about kindergarten. His big sister, Jessie, told him all about it. So Dexter is not scared. Not even a little bit. But his stuffed dog, Rufus, is scared. Actually, he’s terrified. But Dexter–er, Rufus–has nothing to fear: As he’ll soon find out, kindergarten rocks!
My Review: I start teaching my second year of Kindergarten on Monday and I’m super excited and tired! One of my favorite books to read in the first week is Kindergarten Rocks. Dexter is preparing for Kindergarten and is just a bit nervous. The story gives examples of what students will learn in Kindergarten as well as what they will do. I love that the story discusses things like making art writing letters, and looking at books. It gives very specific examples that students can look forward to. The illustrations are unique in that they have word bubbles to show whose talking. I have never seen this in a picture book before. The ending is fun and shows students and parents how amazing Kindergarten can be.
