We conclude our three part series of books to be gifted this festive season with the ‘Top Picks for Kindergarteners (4-6 Year Olds)’. Our sincere thanks to the Founder of the Little Readers’ Nook – Devaki Bhujang Gajare for giving us a list of books to help our readers pick the age appropriate books for their children.
Being a member of the Little Readers’ Nook it has helped us get the best of titles for our children and has made reading and learning a fun filled activity.
Knowing several young mothers just like us who sometimes wonder what books to buy for their kids, we hope that our book reading list for kids will come handy to you as well.
While our children’s reading list Part 1 was about – Top 5 Books for Toddlers (0-2 Year Olds), Part 2 focused on Top 5 Books for Preschoolers (2-4 Year Olds). Our final series will help you pick books for Kindergarteners, take a look…
Top Picks for Kindergarteners (4-6 Year Olds)
1. A Sick Day for Amos McGee – Philip C. Stead, Erin E. Stead
Friends come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. In Amos McGee’s case, all sorts of species, too! Every day he spends a little bit of time with each of his friends at the zoo. But when Amos is too sick to make it to the zoo, his animal friends decide it’s time they returned the favour.
What we love: The warm friendships and the detailed fleshing out of each animal character
2. Library Lion – Michelle Knudsen, Kevin Hawkes
Miss Merriweather, the head librarian, is very particular about rules. But when a lion comes to the library one day, no one is sure what to do. As it turns out, this lion seems very well suited to library visiting. He never roars in the library. But when something terrible happens, the lion quickly comes to the rescue in the only way he knows how.
What we love: Potential to spark an interesting discussion on rules!
3. Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type – Doreen Cronin
Farmer Brown has a problem. His cows like to type. All day long he hears: Click, clack, moo. Click, clack, moo. Click, clack, moo. But Farmer Brown’s problems REALLY begin when his cows start leaving him notes…Come join the fun as a bunch of literate cows turn Farmer Brown’s farm upside-down!
What we love: The wild imagination and zany humour – whoever would’ve thought cows could type!
4. The Day the Crayons Quit – Drew Daywalt, Oliver Jeffers
Poor Duncan just wants to colour. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: His crayons have had enough of colouring the same old things! They quit! What can Duncan possibly do to appease all of the crayons and get them back to doing what they do best?
What we love: Guaranteed to unleash your child’s creativity!
5. The Elephant in the Tree – Mallika Nagarajan
In old myths, Indra’s elephant Airavat helps bring rain to all by reaching his trunk into the watery underworld, sucking up its water and spraying it into the clouds. In this lovely story, Mahi helps a wondrous seven-trunked elephant plant trees, make rain and save the Tree of Life.
What we love: A riot of colours, the book’s message of environmental conservation is an apt one to pass on to the younger generation.
