Pouch!
Pouch! - David Ezra Stein

This is a cute story about a joey.  It would be a good book for a kindergarten class.  I could see a lesson created from this book on: not being scared to make new friends, diversity, number word recognition, and to introduce new vocabulary pertaining to kangaroos!  Mostly, this is just a cute story for the bookshelf that young readers can enjoy.  Questions to ask the students: 

What is he feeling every time he yells "POUCH!"?

What's a baby kangaroo called?

How many animals does he see as he hops?

Have you ever been nervous or afraid and wanted to run back to your mommy?

How does Joey feel when he makes a new friend?

Do we have to be friends with ONLY the people like us?

Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons
Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons - Eric Litwin,James Dean

The authors of this book do an excellent job with repetitious words.  That makes Pete the Cat books great books to use for choral reading!  This particular book emphasizes number words so it is a choice that would be super for preK up to 1st grade.
