( / )


A reassuring and empowering book for all incoming kindergarteners, especially those who wonder: Am I ready? You are!

The unknown can be scary and the first day of school intimidating, for kids and the grownups who love them. Perfect for easing nerves and increasing excitement, Ready for Kindergarten is about all the things kids love to do that show they are ready to start school. Created in consultation with education experts, the book highlights skills that teachers will build upon in the classroom—like imaginative play, recognizing colors and shapes, and cooperating with friends—and encourages kids to enjoy and practice them. Look who is ready for kindergarten!

Bethany V. Freitas is the author of Not Yet, Yeti illustrated by Maddie Frost, a story about having a growth mindset at school. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband and two kids, one of whom started kindergarten while she wrote this book. (He was ready!)

Maja Andersen is an illustrator of books and greeting cards. She takes inspiration from retro-Scandinavian modern design, folk art, dance, and music. She lives in Kansas City, Missouri.

"Buoyant and useful—for children, teachers, and parents alike." -Kirkus Reviews "Whether read aloud in classrooms or shared at home, this is an enjoyable and helpful tool to promote kindergarten readiness in young children." -School Library Journal (starred review)
