The Last Day of Kindergarten Review (Tomoson)

I received the The Last Day of Kindergarten, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The book was written by Nancy Loewen and illustrated by Saschiko Yoshikawa. I received a hardback copy.

The book is a great, quick read, about a little girl, who is experiencing the last day of kindergarten. She goes over her first day of kindergarten and remembers how she hung up her backpack and played with shiny new markers. She remembers circle time and playing with her friend. She gets a great lesson in the end.

I liked the book because Kalen is in his last year of PPCD. If he wasn't special needs, this would be his first year of Pre-K (starting in August). I got an letter the other day, saying pre-k would start at 4, instead of 5. I wasn't sure where Kalen would go because PPCD (preschool for children with developmental disabilities) goes until 5. I just had his ARD/IEP for his goals for the upcoming school year. He will be in PPCD for one more year, Pre-K for one year, and then on to Kindergarten.

I wasn't ready for him to start Pre-K, let alone make the transition to move him to a different school. His PPCD is not his districted school. I didn't want a new teacher. I didn't want the pre-k round up. I didn't want to buy new school clothes in his new school colors.

The book is great for any kid, who is getting ready to transition into a new grade.

You can purchase the book on Amazon using the link above in Kindle, Kindle unlimited, and hardback format.
