Monkey Not Ready for Kindergarten


Monkey Not Ready for Kindergarten
By Marc Brown
Alfred A. Knopf, 2015. Picture Book.

Monkey feels he is not ready for kindergarten even though it is only a week away. His parents and brother talk to him about some of the fun things he will be doing at kindergarten, like reading books, show and tell, and music class. In preparation they buy him a new backpack and lunchbox but he still doesn’t feel ready…and then the big day comes. Is he ready?

Simple illustrations and crayon writing text design make this book relatable to the child reader as if the monkey himself is sharing his story. Marc Brown, creator of the Arthur series, has created a great book to read to your little one before their first big day of kindergarten.
