I've probably read My Kindergarten more than any other book on my goodreads shelf. My 4 year-old daughter goes for weeks requesting it every night. And unlike most of her books, this one doesn't drive me nuts the hundredth time through. I'm don't understand the criticisms about this book being too long. It's clearly set up into months and is intended to be read one month at a time, a sort of introduction to chapter books. The characters (animal classmates of Emily the bunny, the narrator) are de ...more

My Kindergarten is a book for the kindergartners as one would assume.I couldn't find the lexile level but it is definitely for the young age who has just begun kindergarten The main characters are Miss Cribbage and her students in Kindergarten. The point of view is through the reader and it takes place in school. This book is collection of poems, short stories, and various activities that a student would read about through the year. It goes through all the 12 months so each month is relatable in ...more
This book isn't quite what I expected. I choose this book because I really would enjoy being a Kindergarten teacher and I was curious to see what this book had in store for me. I really like this book because it goes across the board covering all different types of subject and it has great rhymes, songs, and illustrations that children would enjoy. This book however is not for a child to sit down and read on their own. It's almost more of a teacher tool than a children's book.

I liked this book as a K-read, however, as many have said before me, it is not a book that can be read in one sitting. I would even go so far as to say that it is a book that should be referred to on a scheduled basis.

The book held my kids attention up to a point; the story is much the same for me. The content is appropriate for young minds, and the visuals are colorful and interesting.

Baby animal friends go thru a year of kindergarten with happy smiles and lots to learn! I challenge anyone man enough to read this gem to kids 3-5! Laugh now but that's where the magic starts.

I love kindergarten so much! This book is definitely something to be read at the beginning of the year. This book is a collection of poems, short stories, and a variety of activities kindergarten students would be partake in throughout the year. This would be a great book to read each month because it goes through all 12 months and explains various activities that a student would read about through the year. It also gives students an insight of several different things that will be taught throug ...more

This book teaches young children, most appropriately kindergarteners, many different things. The book is categorized by the months of the school year and gives information about a variety of things from crafts, to holidays, to geography. I thought this book was okay. I thought the information in the book was excellent, but I think it would be difficult to read this to a class, even if you break the excerpts up. Each page tells the reader about something different, so the book feels like the info ...more
In typical Rosemary Wells style, "My Kindergarten" is an adorable collection of songs, poems, and short stories to take young children through the school year. From the nerve-wracking night before school starts to the last day of school, Miss Cribbage's class shares their classroom discoveries with the readers.

Eye-catching, detailed pictures, simple stories, and entertaining tales will keep parents and kids delighted.

We borrowed this from the library, but we're getting our own copy!
Long book, may need to be done in a few sittings. Each page or two is a short story in itself.

I adored this book. I love that it set the stage for some important discussions with kids about civic responsibility, etc. It obviously has some messages that not everyone is going to agree with, but for those who do, it's a lovely way to start to instill those values.

This excellently written book about kindergarten and all of the different and new experiences that these blossoming learners undertake. This a must-read for the kindergartener in your life.
If only they made this book for every grade level! Incorporates math, science, language arts, music, art, and holidays! Different poems and stories AND activities that children will love!
A great gift for parent of a child getting ready to enter kindergarten, this book can be used all year long to inspire discussions about school and to jump start creative activities!

PB18 - This book is PERFECT for kindergardeners... There's something for every day that they are in attendance and there are activities that would keep them very occupied.
I can't decide who this book is actually written for (kids/adults) but it's cute and I liked it.

I'm not sure my 5 year old would enjoy it, however.

A book that contains lessons that are stated in the table of contents by Month.
Each lesson has a story, poem, or activity associated with the lesson.
we read the first few months of the longish collection of poems. they were nice but it is realyl something to be read through an entire year.
One of the best by the prolific Rosemary Wells. We should all hope that our kindergarteners have an experience like this.
Really cute... it goes through each month of the year and talks about activities that a kindergartner might do.
this book is way to long to read in one sitting. I even got bored with it.
