“Look Out, Kindergarten, Here I Come!” is a great bilingual book about the first day of kindergarten. The book includes the text written in English above the pictures, and in Spanish below the pictures. These types of books are fantastic for English language learners who can read fluently in Spanish, but not yet in English. Students can compare the two different texts and use the native language text to figure out some of the words in English that they may not know. Another thing that I enjoyed about the book was the illustrations. First of all, the illustrations were very colorful and filled up nearly the entire page. In addition, the characters were animals and all had very happy and excited expressions on every page. These types of illustrations would be very appealing to a child and help get them excited for their first day of school. The main idea of the book is that Kindergarten is fun and there is no reason to be scared. ( )

This is a book about a little boys first day of kindergarden. It starts off with his mom waking him up and he was so excited and ready to go, but he wasn't even dressed yet. Mother tells him wake up and get dressed. After breakfast they walk to school and all he could think of was what were we going to do today. When he arrived at school it was big and he started to wonder if he would get lost. After locating his classroom he started to get scared and wanted to go home, the teacher came over and talk to him and ask him to stay. He looked around and saw all the the things he loved to do and told his mother he would like to stay.

This is a great book for teachers and parents to read to their children upon entering kindergarden. It prepares the children to know what to expect the first day of school.

You may take a tour of the classroom and meet the teachers before entereing kindergarden. You could talk about how some things will be the same as when you were in preschool and some will be different. ( )

Ages 3-5 - Henry wakes up excited the morning of his first day of kindergarten - the day he has been waiting for. The story follows him through his preparations for the big day - brushing his teeth, eating breakfast, packing his supplies. As he walks to school he talks with his mom about what kindergarten will be like; he is confident that he will do well - until he gets to school.
This is a simple story that sweetly addresses the anxiety and excitement of starting a brand-new step in a child's life. Henry and his mouse family are very brightly and childishly illustrated, which will have great visual appeal to young children. The dual language format would make this book great for bilingual storytime. Recommended for picture book collections in all sizes of public libraries. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140568387, Paperback)

The first day of kindergarten is finally here, and Henry can't wait to paint pictures, sing songs, and practice counting. When he gets to school, though, he's not so sure he's ready for kindergarten. But before long Henry discovers that the only thing he's not ready for is how much fun he's going to have at school! This gently humorous, encouraging story will give children about to enter kindergarten an extra boost of confidence.

"Perfect for parents to share with their children, and the endearing Henry will offer reassurance to even the most hesitant prekindergartners."
