Planet kindergarten

Planet Kindergarten‘ by Sue Ganz-Schmitt is a book worth looking¬† at regardless of what primary grade you teach. This book is an extended metaphor comparing space exploration to starting school.¬† In this story the new student enters a new world as he begins school on planet Kindergarten : a place where ‘gravity works differently… We have to try hard to stay in our seats.’ The colours are bright and the layout is interesting. There is a message for all students beginning a new adventure. This story is funny and reassuring at the same time. I am looking forward to sharing this book with class soon.
