Classic Picture Books for Kindergarten

Classic picture books are the ones we never seem to get tired of, even if we read them everyday!  They are timeless favorites.  They are delightful and comforting.  They feed our imaginations.  They are powerful and memorable.

And so for the final week of the Summer Stash blog hop, we are bringing you our favorite classic books!

And be sure to keep reading for our GIVEAWAY!



Hosted by:
Stone Soup by Marcia Brown


This is one of my top stories, because I have fond memories of making stone soup when I was in elementary school!
This book tells the French tale of soldiers who cleverly trick some peasants into making a delicious soup made of stones!

Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina


This is a favorite in my class!  Of course I am super animated when I read this story, and the kids can't get enough.  We love acting out the story, shaking our fists and stomping our feet at the monkeys!
Day in and day out the peddler walks the streets selling his caps, which he keeps on top of his head.  One day he sits under a tree to rest, and when he wakes up, he sees that monkeys have taken each one of his hats up in the tree.  He eventually gets the caps back after tricking the monkeys.

It Looked Like Spilt Milk by Charles G. Shaw


You students will enjoy identifying the shapes in this book as you read.
The repetitive text follows a simple pattern and kids love retelling this story.

Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak


While Max is in a time-out in his room, he imagines a land where wild things live.  He becomes the king, but soon realizes he wants to be back home.

The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn


A great book for the first day of school!
Chester Raccoon doesn't want to go to school. His mother shares a special secret with him, the Kissing Hand.  It comforts him while he is at school, away from his mom.

Here is a fun project I have my students complete on the first day of school.

  2. My 4 year old son has formed a fantastic relationships with all of the teachers. He would hug each one before we were leaving for England. His classes at Phoenix preschool were full of excellent teachers.
