Book for kindergarteners to read that they will absolutely love!

Getting your little one excited about reading can be a difficult thing to do. Especially now when everyone is all about consuming visual content. Even kids! Who would like nothing more than watching a video on a social media site.

However, there is a trick to getting your kids wanting to take up a book about summer vacation! And that is by shortlisting reads that totally stretch their imagination. Drawing them into a magical world where the sky is only the beginning, not the limit.

Here are 7 such  

  1. The Harry Potter Series
  2. Written by the master yarn spinner, JK Rowling, calling the Harry Potter series of books a must-read for every child is an understatement. They are by far one of the most magical written worlds your child can enter into.

    Centred around the world of a young 11-year old orphan boy who finds out he is a wizard, the Harry Potter series of books teach kids about friendship while inculcating a sense of curiosity and a whole lot of wonder in them.

    Gripping from the very first sentence of the very first book, your kids love this series. However, since this series is part of our books for kindergarteners to read, we suggest introducing your little ones to just the first two books for now. For the sake of age appropriateness. They can read the others as they get older.

  3. Matilda
  4. A classic work of art by Roald Dahl, Matilda is a story of a little girl of the same name who develops the magical power of telekinesis in the face of adversity. Will she use it for good? Or will her powers be used by her to do something bad?

    That and many more questions are answered by this cult favourite book that has also been translated into many languages and made into a movie, starring the all-too-popular Kate Winslet!

    That said, Matilda’s underlying theme of a family who is unkind to her daughter may make it a part of books for kids who are a little older.

  5. The BFG
  6. Another one of Roald Dahl’s supremely popular works, The BFG is like a balm to a child’s soul. Especially if your child feels a little stressed or anxious during the holidays on account of being far away from their friends during summer vacations.

    This perfect vacation book for preschoolers traverses the realm of dreams, painting vivid scenes that nurture your child’s imagination and take them to a world filled with positivity and beauty all around. The BFG is also a touching story of an unconventional bond, teaching the lesson that friends can be found anywhere. Even in the most unlikeliest of places.

  7. Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series
  8. You know what makes the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series one of the best vacation books for preschoolers? The fact that a lot of the books in this 18+ part graphic novel series are based on the holiday adventures of its main character, Greg Heffley, who himself is a school kid. So expect your kids to relate a lot to this book!

    This ever continuing series of books by Jeff Kinney also features a couple of interactive editions, which encourage kids to fill the blank pages with their own comic style drawings and stories, so that is a bonus fun and creative activity!

  9. The Travel Book
  10. So this one takes a little detour from novels. It is actually an informational summer vacation book for kindergarten. You know the kind that your little one can geek out on. It is actually by Lonely Planet Kids so you can count on the information to be accurate.

    Now as for what the book is all about, The Travel Book delves into the great outdoors. It is a cumulation of the many sensory experiences that you can have when you travel. Uniquely cultural experiences that can open your eyes to a different world and make you appreciate the differences that lie there.
