A great first week of school read for kindergarten kids. It could also be used for first grade. I love the illustrations and explaining to a class how I pack up and then unpack my our classroom each year.

Great book about how a teacher prepares for her/his first day of class, as well as how students prepare for their first days. I like how animals are used in this book and there is rhyming that goes on. ( )

Summary: Mrs. Bindergarten is preparing her classroom for the upcoming school year. Each students first name starts with a letter from the alphabet, which starts with A and ends with Z. Finally upon meeting all the children, Mrs. Bindergarten gets her classroom finished right in time!

I really enjoyed this book. It wasn't boring and it did a great job displaying the alphabet. I also really liked the illustrations, they are very colorful which I know kids will enjoy!

Miss Bindergarten is hard at work getting the kindergarten classroom ready for her twenty-six new students. Meanwhile, Adam Krupp wakes up, Brenda Heath brushes her teeth, and Christopher Beaker finds his sneaker, etc. Miss Bindergarten puts the finishing touches on the room just in time, and the students arrive. I would love to use this book as it introduces the ABCs. Also at the end of the book it shows all twenty-six students and what type of animal they are. This book is great for ages 3-6.

Young animal children prepare for their first day of kindergarten. Each young animal are different letters of the alphabet (example: Adam Alligator, Brenda Beaver, etc). ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0140562737, Paperback)

On the first day of kindergarten, Miss Bindergarten must prepare her classroom for her beloved students. This noble, whimsical teacher greets her dark, summertime-empty classroom with an explosion of color--a bouquet of fall leaves, a goldfish, rolled-up posters, and shoeboxes full of no-doubt-delightful surprises. Meanwhile, her young students get ready, too: "Adam Krupp wakes up. Brenda Heath brushes her teeth. Christopher Beaker finds his sneaker." Author Joseph Slate matches each animal character with a letter of the alphabet, and readers can flip to the back to discover that Adam is an alligator, Brenda is a beaver, and Christopher is a cat--and so on, through the more obscure animals such as the quokka and the Uakari monkey. Youngsters will relish the scenes of school preparation, adorned by rhyming text: a mother iguana dragging her son Ian Lowe (who cries "I won't go!") out the front door, and the little vole Vicki Densel biting her pencil. And of course Miss Bindergarten is the kindergarten teacher we either remember fondly or wish we had. The final back-to-school classroom scene explodes with love and pride and the smell of freshly sharpened pencils. For kids who adore this book--and there are thousands--don't miss Joseph Slate and Ashley Wolff's second loving tribute to teachers and students, Miss Bindergarten Celebrates the 100th Day of Kindergarten. (Ages 4 and older) --Karin Snelson
