What are your favorite beginning of the school year books to read aloud?

Hello All,

I was wondering what other Kindergarten teacher love to read aloud in the first day or first week of school. I have a small list myself but I wanted to know if there are super-must-read ones out there I'm missing.

Here's my small list:
The Kissing Hand
Forest Friends (http://crisscrossapplesauce.typepad....st-friends.pdf) *Very cute book!!!* [You'll have to make, laminate and spiral bound the book yourself]
David Goes to School
Kevin Knows the Rules
Kindergarten Rocks
Chika Chika Boom Boom
Ms. Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten
Pete the Cat in My School Shoes
Too Much Glue

Thanks for your suggestions and help in advanced! =)

I also read Chrysanthemum, usually during the 2nd week though.

We have just boys, the first day, and just girls on the second, so we obviously want to do a school tour and discuss rules/regulations around the school. So, I basically start w/ The Gingerbread Man and stop before he gets eaten. Then, we have a cutout gingerbread man w/ directions that start the tour. Our team of teachers has already posted various gingerbread cutouts in important areas of the school where we want to show locations and/or discuss rules. Each cutout leads to the next location. One of the locations is the cafeteria, so we obviously want to get there pretty early on to review the lunch procedure before real lunch time.

Other books I like to read: The Kissing Hand and Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten

Favorite Book

My favorite book to read to my students is "Mean Jean The Recess Queen". Great for teaching students rules for recess. My students love this book and I read it all year long just as a reminder and the kids request me to read it to them. If you google this book you will find lesson plans also to go with it.

I alos like My Mouth is a Volcano by Julia Cook. It offers a cute way to teach kids about waiting their turn to talk and respecting others while they are talking.
