PCS Kindergarten Teachers' Favorite Titles for New Students

Starting kindergarten is a milestone! How can you talk about kindergarten with your child before the first day of school? One way to begin the conversation is by reading books about kindergarten and school together. We asked our amazing kindergarten teachers to share a list of their favorite books for new students. Here, in no particular order, are the titles especially loved by Mrs. Felton, Mrs. Hines and Mrs. DuClos:
