First Day of Preschool

Starting kindergarten is an exciting time, but it can also be a scary time. Your child may ask: Will I find a friend? Will I get lost in the building? Will we ever get to play? These titles may help ease your child’s concerns. For a more inclusive list of materials, please stop by the ASK ME Desk. Titles found in the sections listed below are arranged alphabetically by author or by call number.
