I am new to kindergarten this year. What are some of your favorite books to read to students during the first few days of school?

Thanks

The Kissing Hand (helps those babies separating my mamas)
Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes (Pete the Cat is just awesome--and this one introduces different parts of the school building)
Chrysanthemum (use a springboard for name activities AND for kindness/differences)
Owen
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (no kindergarten is complete without this book)
Is Your Mama a Llama? (lots of rhyming words)

The Kissing Hand
Miss Bindergarten (have a book they make that goes with it)
First Day Jitters
Whole Body Listening Larry Goes to School (this is part of my classroom management)
Kindergarten, Here I Come!
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (We make a book and replace the animals with student names)


This isn't the first few days, but kids LOVE The Book with No Pictures. Last year's class begged to hear it every. blessed. day.
