Kindergarten is the time when children become more aware and curious about people, places, and things. Their social world now includes others outside the family.

They are now ready for stories that help them try on different personalities and assist them over difficult stages. They need stories whose sole purpose is fun, entertainment, and enjoyment. Kindergartners enjoy seeing characters that take risks, gain control over their surroundings, and where all ends in happy ever after. Unlike preschool books, these stories have a beginning, middle, and end.

This is an exciting age for Kindergartners, full of new and exhausting information. Don't push for learning to read just yet. Listening to stories is where reading begins.

Humor and nonsense keep life in balance and are essential ingredients in children's development. Children need silly and absurd stories that bring forth giggles and belly laughs. They can enjoy upside down situations and nonsensical stories because they know it's only make-believe.

Growing up can be so serious at times that it is important to present humor in as many ways as possible. Hopefully, children will never lose their appetite for fun and imagination. These are the stories they will remember and pass on to following generations.


Kindergartners should have the opportunity to hear as many of the classics as possible that are appropriate to their age level. We recommend the following stories that have endured over the years:
