I love that a beautiful collection of picture books made Lindsey think of me. That made me smile.
And then the list made me smile even more.
Michael Petrilli, the Executive Vice President of the Thomas Fordham Institute, wrote a post titled The Kindergarten Canon in which he collected, all the titles, old and new, that he believed each and every pre-schooler should know.
I am proud to say that I have read 96 out of the 100 titles.
How about you?
I have not read Goggles by Ezra Jack Keats, Put Me in the Zoo by Robert Lopshire, The Story About Ping by Margorie Flack & Kurt Wiese and Tootle by Gertrude Crampton & Tibor Gergley.
And of course, while this is a gorgeously amazing list, I have to mention a few that I would add.
Maryann Hoberman’s Seven Silly Eaters, Jane O’Connor’s Fancy Nancy, Bonny Becker’s A Visitor for Bear, Phillip Stead’s A Sick Day for Amos McGee and on and on and on…
And you? What would you add to this fantastic list?
