The Twelve Days of Kindergarten A Counting Book by Deborah Lee Rose

On the first day of kindergarten, my teacher gave to me the whole alphabet from A to Z. Welcome to kindergarten, a wonderful world full of puzzles, pencils, and picture books! Each day promises an adventure as teachers give their students something new to do. Whether feeding fish or building with blocks, these students discover what fun school can be! Drawing on the rhythm and rich repetition of the familiar Twelve Days of Christmas, Deborah Lee Rose's story is a lighthearted and welcoming introduction to school. Kids will love following along and joining in as the text accumulates, culminating on the twelfth day. Readers of all ages will want to enroll!
