The Summer Before Kindergarten

Create a summer of memories and inspire a lifelong love of learning

The summer before Kindergarten can be an exciting and nerve-racking time.  We get it! 
We are teachers and parents of young children. 
The question we hear most is, “How do I prepare my child for Kindergarten?” 
This book is an introduction of numbers, letters, and Kindergarten readiness skills. It includes short, fun, and hands-on learning experiences for parents to share with their child the summer before Kindergarten.  These activities provide a recipe for Kindergarten success.
