How to Prepare for Kindergarten by Gabriella S. Rajguru is a must-read for any child who is about to begin their kindergarten journey. Since the book is authored by a current K-12 student, who is not far removed from the kindergarten experience, the main character's feelings of worry and excitement are genuine and palpable. The crisp illustrations make this story of a soon-to-be kindergartener truly come to life. Readers of all ages can relate to the feelings of anticipation expertly reflected in this work!

How To Prepare for Kindergarten by Gabrella S Rajguru was a heartwarming book to read with my soon to be kindergartener. I loved the example tasks that were given throughout that help you prepare for kindergarten such as, learning the days of the week, memory games, and letter recognition. Going into the kindergarten is such a huge leap for children and we all want them to succeed so it can be stressful for not only the child but the parent as well. The illustrations are adorable, and I love how I can see myself doing the exact same things as they outline within the story. Reading this story as set my mind at ease because these are things I already do, and I hope in doing so has also eased the nerves of my little.
Thank you NetGalley for the ARC.
