50 Books for Kindergarteners

A reading list, for kindergarten? These 50 books, both old and new, make for top-notch reading that young children shouldn't miss.
There's everything from read-alouds to early reading practice, and they deal with topics (like fear of school), skills to master
(such as the alphabet), and, of course, flat-out fun!
So hunker down and get reading!
