Sprout JA Learning Early: Books for Kindergarteners

According to the National Education Association, children who are read to frequently are more likely to count to 20 or higher when starting school compared to those who were not read to. Engage with your child by checking out the following books that focus on concepts of careers and money all while helping them develop basic learning skills.  

Books for Kindergarteners

Careers / Entrepreneurs

Camila’s Lemonade Stand (4.7 / 5)

“Camila is a plucky kid in the Career Launcher Crew, seven fearless children in search of their futures. When she finds herself with no money for the Ferris wheel, friendly sprite Itsy shows up to give her some good advice: she can start a business! What happens when Jaden opens a competing cookie stall? And will the dark clouds on the horizon rain out their fun?... Camila’s Lemonade Stand is a wonderful first introduction to entrepreneurship. Grounded in the key principles underpinning every successful venture.”

Cleonardo, the Little Inventor (4.7 / 5)

“Cleonardo's father is an inventor. So was her grandfather, her great-grandfather, and all the great-greats before them. Cleo wants to be an inventor too. She tries to help her father in his workshop, but he never uses her great ideas. Can Cleo invent something big and important and perfect all by herself?
This imaginative story of a father and his daughter brings the magic of creativity to little inventors everywhere.”

How this Book was Made (4 / 5)

“You may think you know how this book was made, but you don't. Sure, the author wrote many drafts, and the illustrator took a long time creating the art, but then what? How'd it get into your hands? Well, open the cover and read through these pages to find out. Just beware of the pirates and angry tiger. New York Times best-selling creators Mac Barnett and Adam Rex reveal the nitty gritty process of making a book . . . with a few unexpected twists along the way! Budding writers and artists will laugh at the mix of reality and the absurd as the story makes its way to a shelf, and a reader.”

Money

            The Coin Counting Book (4 / 5)

The Coin Counting Book is the perfect introduction to counting, addition, and identifying American money. From one penny to one dollar, readers will learn the various coins, their mathematical relationships, and how to add them all together once their piggybanks are full.  Detailed photos of real money against colorful and bold backgrounds depict each coin along with their value. Rozanne Lanczak Williams’ simple rhyming text makes coin recognition, addition, and skip-counting fun and approachable for readers new to counting and currency.”
