Great Book 17 Aug. 2005
By Joseph Towne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
We bought this for our 5 year old son, who will be soon entering kindergarten. We read it everynight and he loves it! The text of the story is neat and the pictures are very colorful, has alot of detail, and my son asks many questions. We like it because it provides important information to a child entering kindergarten and gives them a chance to understand the transition and what to expect. At open house, my son's teacher had this book on the classroom shelf and it made our son think this is cool and we really enjoyed that! Good Book! Would buy again or recommend it to a child entering kindergarten!

A calm and winning introduction to kindergarten 12 Aug. 2002
By Catherine S. Vodrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Anne Rockwell's calm "Welcome to Kindergarten" is a winning way to introduce any preschooler to the idea of what comes next in the way of schooling. Tim, a little boy about to enter kindergarten, goes to the school with his mother--he's clearly nervous and comments on how foreign everything is, and how big the furniture, halls, and classroom are. But after his teacher has had an opportunity to show him around the different classroom areas (art, science, reading, math, and so on), Tim finds that he's more than ready for kindergarten--he's positively excited about it.
Rockwell's simplistic paintings accompany concise text and they complement each other beautifully. The colors are strong and clear, the details just right, and the movement from one classroom area to another helps to mimic what an actual kindergarten school day will be like. Just right for young kiddos who may harbor a little nervousness about that all-important first day!

Welcome to Kindergarten 28 Jun. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Welcome to Kindergarten is a wonderful book for those with children about to enter this new world of school. Anne F. Rockwell takes you on this journey through the orientation day of kindergarten. As most children, Tim is afraid to enter this big school with these big children. After entering the classroom, this book takes you through each learning center in a typical kindergarten classroom. Each page shows Tim playing and learning in each center as he becomes more comfortable with the environment. A great tool as well as a fun book to read.

Good picture book preparation for Kindergarten 1 Nov. 2001
By James W. Tinder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A visually winning and educational book for preschoolers reading for school. Tim is a 5 year old visiting a kindergarten class before he starts school. In self-narration, he tells the reader that he is nervous, but he soon learns of all the fun things he will do, including crafts. Tim also discovers that he will learn how to count, write, and how to measure and make cookies. At the end of the day, Tim concludes that kindergarten will be an exciting place.

Rockwell's use of color is the main highlight of this work. The primary colors burst forth in vibrancy, accentuated and augmented by the use of watercolors. The art looks as if it could have been drawn by a child, which surely will create a sense of realism for the young reader. The absence of lines and pencils presents depth and texture to the art, but children will be drawn into the book by the actions of their peers in the story. A good book for preschool storytime to prepare children for school.

GPS For Kindergarteners 6 Dec. 2009
By Spudman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is well designed for the young reader. Colors are bright and vibrant to attract young eyes and the simple, uncomplicated watercolor graphics could have been crafted by a talented, precocious child. The book's pages are glossy stock, heavy and easy to turn for young fingers.

Rockwell uses appropriate language on a level her intended audience can understand. Text appears on every other page and is minimal so as not to overwhelm the prospective kindergartner. The book's effectiveness doesn't suffer with the lack of rhyme or repetition.

This is a book that lends itself to interactive reading of parent and child. The pictures support the text so well that a nonreader can benefit by revisiting those full page graphics depicting the routine kindergarten activities.

When I taught for the public school system we always had an orientation for the incoming students. Elementary students visited my room for a period. I talked to them about middle school, answered questions, and took them on a brief tour of the building. The following September many of them would seek me out referencing that day. During one orientation, a student asked if I was that teacher who liked potatoes. Apparently my reputation had preceded me. These planned visits dispelled misgivings, calmed fears, and gave reassurance to the wide eyed visitors. Fortunately or unfortunately the apprehensive feelings and shy demeanors quickly gave way to security and relaxation.

Welcome to Kindergarten is a wonderful book to share with a prospective kindergartner. Reading it may go a long way in making that first day one to anticipate, not dread.
