Publishers Description
With its comprehensive curriculum providing a sound basis in the fundamentals of math, art, history, language arts, science, and technology, the phenomenally successful Core Knowledge series has become an esteemed tool for parents and teachers striving to better educate today's children. And since it is agreed that the first years of schooling are crucial to a child's lifetime educational achievements, it is no wonder that parents and teachers alike have been asking for a volume for kindergartners.

This primer for those just beginning their school careers was devised with the contributions of over 2,000 parents, educators and students, distilled into a user-friendly volume specifically designed for parents to use with their children. Eighty pages of four-color illustrations enliven the new, bold design of this latest title in a series adopted by hundreds of schools nationwide and appreciated by thousands of adults looking to instill in children a lifetime love of learning.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great starting point for kindergarteners!  Aug 24, 2007
Once I got past the fact that they spell 'kindergartner' differently than I would (and yes, I even checked to verify their way was correct, lol!), I set about examining the book itself.

The series focuses on defining the least common denominator of what children absolutely must learn before moving on to a higher grade, and I'm very grateful for some level of guidance. I'm a (newbie) homeschooler, and I could not for the life of me find any kind of reference to tell me what skills are the most important to learn at the kindergarten level. With this book, I finally did.

This book not only tells me the essentials of what should be covered, but also ways to teach them and gives references to other books that I can use to do it. As so many before me have said, the curriculum included is not all your children are expected to learn in kindergarten. However, it provides a solid place to start.

The introduction is excellent and helps the reader understand that when our children are being educated, there needs to be a common ground--things that all children need to learn before moving on to the next grade level. Having moved at the end of 2nd grade, I know all too well what it's like to be bored out of your skull in class as your teacher covers things you already learned eons ago. And if a kid from my new school had moved to my old school, imagine the stress of suddenly being expected to know things you've never been exposed to!

One comment of this book really got me. The parent who felt she'd scarred her child for life by reading Casey Jones to him really made me shake my head. A responsible parent will read a story he or she is planning on with a child in advance, to make sure that you want to and are ready to discuss anything that the story might bring up. Don't blame the book; blame yourself for not doing your homework. It took me less than 2 minutes to read the Casey Jones story, which I did based on that review. It was the story of a brave man who sacrificed his life to save the lives of many, much like another story I expose my children to all the time.
Didn't like all the stories & they were violent  Aug 17, 2007
It seems to me this book is very highly liked by the people that home school. Which is great. I do not home school my children and i did find a few things interesting. But nothing that i couldn't find in another book about history etc.

I mostly did not like all the "classic" stories and poems. I grew up with many of these stories and KNOW my parents and grandparents told them in a much less violent way. I will be returning this book for sure.

If you don't want to tell your child stories about death, violence and hitting then don't waste your time on this book. I know they will learn this at some point....but let them be children for the short time they are innocent.

Good luck!

Millionaire in 365 Days: The Daily Plan to Get There

Homeschooling made easy  Jun 4, 2007
If you want to homeschool in the easiest style imaginable, this is the book for you.

Personally, I would urge a new homeschooling parent to read "Give Your Child a Superior Mind" and do a little research on Froebel's theories, but if you have minimal time to spend, this is THE book for you.
Key to the Future  Apr 14, 2007
I first read Hirsch's book in the mid 90s when I started my career as an educator. The insights and revelations his book yielded paid huge dividends for me. I have read the stories to my kindergarteners, used the math activities, and have profited from the advice on what constitutes a strong school. The beginning of the book should be read and reread by all educators and parents, for it provides some sobering reasons for why our nation's school system is in trouble. It also gives commonsense information on what we can do to make our schools stronger. E. D. Hirsch is the pioneer of the Core Curriculum, which I believe can save education in America. Please read this book, but more importantly use it!
