The Day My Mom Came to Kindergarten

Fergus, Maureen.  The Day My Mom Came to Kindergarten. 2013. Kids Can Press.

The story is about a student who is a Kindergartener experiencing the joys of being in school and mainly focuses on her mother's trouble of being away from her. The child invites her mother to class with her for an entire day.  The student is surprised her mother cannot follow rules and spends the day showing her mom how a Kindergartener should behave.

The writing style was comical, yet simple enough for a Kindergartener to understand.  The reading was not very difficult or lengthy.

The illustrator definitely brought the entire story to life and made the reading even more fun by seeing the characters- most importantly the mother- misbehaving and the daughter correcting her.

I would recommend this book as it was really fun to read and won't take much time at all to get its point across.  Many children might enjoy sharing this book with their parents or vice versa.  I think it would be appropriate for no older than first graders and maybe age 4.  Really great reading style even highlights words that could be used as vocabulary terms in a classroom setting.
