14 Perfect Kindergarten Books To Prepare Your Kid For The Big Day

To prepare him, and us, we bought a few books about starting kindergarten and preparing for kindergarten. For him, not for us.

Today was the big day. The first day of kindergarten for The Kid.

Yeah, the years flew.

He was nervous. He wouldn’t say it but it was obvious. Shit, I was nervous. It was obvious and I’d tell anyone who’d ask. I was dreading the day. I thought the worst.

And, as always, I was wrong. The Kid handled it like a pro. Absolute pro. Now, only like 162 more days to go.

To prepare him, and us, we bought a few kindergarten books about starting and preparing for the first day of school. For him, not for us. Here are a couple of the titles along with a few more to hopefully make the transition a little easier.
