In our family one of the best times of the week is Library Day. My kids love to scour the shelves and find great books. I love to pick out fun things to read aloud with my kindergarten child. Out of all the books we have read there are twenty so far that we really love. Here are the top 20 books for kindergarteners!
20 Great Books to Read to your Kindergarten Child
Each of these books should be available at your local library. If not, I have included the Amazon link for each book so that you can purchase it if needed.

The Library Dragon – Do you have a reluctant reader? Is library day a sad day for one of your kids? This book is a must read! We loved this one!
