There are no children’s books for kindergarten that is also loved by the adult. I will try to change this mindset through these classic children’s books for kindergarteners. It is slightly awkward for adult who also want to read children’s books. However, I feel that it is okay since we sometime read aloud these books for our children as well. In this article, I would like to share the books that are loved by kindergarteners and adults as well. These books are categorized as classic ones since they were published in a long time ago. Without further ado, let’s check out them all below.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
The first one of children’s books for kindergarten is by Eric Carle. We know that combining some ideas in a children’s book such as how to count, the colors, days in a week, healthy food and metamorphosis process isn’t an easy process. However, Carle had done it in his book called The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Instead of publishing his Willie Worm, Carle offered something unusual to the children that there will be always a hope in the future as same as the philosophy of the book itself, a beautiful butterfly after metamorphosis process. Many reviewers call this book the most perfect picture book in the world and I do agree with that.
The Cat in the Hat
Kindergarten’s age is when the children should be introduced with many words and imaginations so that they will have more passion and motivation in reading a book. Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat is what I’m talking about here. Instead of writing simple tale within three hundred words of kindergarten’s students have to know, he presented a tale that has 1,629 words and exceeded the expectation. He didn’t only use the most-known words for six-year children, but also popular and recognizable characters in this book. Moreover, he also wrapped them all into lovely story that can be read all the times.
The Tale of Peter Rabbit
If you have found some children’s books for kindergarten that show the life of animal in human clothing, they might be inspired by Beatrix Potter. Her book, the Tale of Peter Rabbit, has been just hitting more than a hundred years now. This book becomes the first picture book that illustrates the animal in human clothing. It tells about the adventure of naughty rabbit Peter and isn’t too old yet for our lovely kids or even us as adults. You can feel its originality through the unique illustration and beautiful words within the book.
J.R.R Tolkien’s masterpiece will complete my children’s books for kindergarten today. The Hobbit isn’t only magnificent in the movie or film, but also the original book with magical words, passing through our imaginations and creativities. This is a good book for kids who are growing up eight to ten years old. In other words, it is at the highest kindergarten’s level that is ready to read some difficult literature but they won’t feel bored after all. The old-fashioned action of the Hobbit doesn’t age even for adult readers.
