It doesn't take Anna long to find out that the teacher isn't scary, they have their own playground, and they get to do homework like big kids! She learns the fun of sharing and makes a giant cow tower, changes her name to Anna from Annalina because it doesn't take so many letters, and learns how with enough practice she can get across those giant monkey bars. The illustrations of Anna's imaginings on the playground are particulary effective, and her picture of her small size compared to the giant first grader was particular poignant.
This book is loads of fun, with lots to enjoy while it sneaks in the message that Kindergarten is really going to be OK. Another great effort from this author and a big recommend for preschoolers and kindergartners.
Reading level ages 4 to 8. (Preschool - K)
The main character is Annalina (who wisely decides to shorten her name to "Anna" until she learns how to spell her name in full!) and the story follows Anna's adventures in Room 2K, taught by nice Ms. Duffy. Anna befriends David M. and Zoe and the trio become great friends. It's fun to read about Anna's exploits, including her attempts to look perfect for picture day at school, which don't quite turn out the way she wants.
This story really captures the kindergarten experience as can be attested to by my daughter. It is a wonderful prep book for anxious preschoolers about to take that big leap into formal schooling. Recommended!
(The monkey bar sequences are especially fun and memorable.) Kindergarten Diary will have pre-schoolers looking forward to the adventures of kindergarten. Sweet, wise and earnest; a must-have for the pre-K crowd (and their parents.)
