Countdown to Kindergarten

line Countdown to Kindergarten
by Alison McGhee(Author), Harry Bliss (Illustrator)

Delightfully Sweet!

School starts in ten days.  An anxious five year old girl gets up and announces “ I am in BIG trouble”. Recently a first grader told her “All About Kindergarten”. The first grader told her that school is all about Rules! There is a rule for everything. You can’t bring your cat to school and you can’t bring your stuffed toy to school. And the most important rule of all:- You can’t ask for help, even if you can’t tie your own shoe laces. What if she is the ONLY one who can’t tie shoe laces!!

As the days count down towards school, little girl is hard at work figuring out how to get the dreaded shoe laces on. Will she be ready in time for school? What if all the other kids know how to tie their own shoe laces and she can’t??

This is a fantastic story to ease any kind of fears a five year old may have before starting Kindergarten. As the first day of school approaches, little girl gets creative and finds interesting ways to solve the problem! The story gets funny as the little girl imagines Worst Possible Cases she might face at school. But as she reluctantly begins her first day of Kindergarten, our little heroine is pleasantly surprised at what her friends can or cannot do

  2. This sounds like a wonderful story. My little girl will start grade R (Kindergarten) in January 2014. The school year is from Jan. – Dec. I’m Tina, an American mom raising 4 kids in South Africa and the author of Amanda’s Books and More. I’m visiting from the Booknificent blog hop.

  3. I can’t believe it, but I have not read this! Definitely a huge gap in my education! I love Alison McGhee’s work, although I have only read her novels. Got to check this out
