"The Night Before Kindergarten" is a children's book introducing young children to the experiences they will enjoy when they attend school. Since 2002 this project has seen books donated by Kiwanis Clubs Belleville, Kente and Tweed distributed free of charge to more than 40 elementary schools in The Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board and the Algonquin and Lakeshore District Catholic School Board. In the spring of 2016 about 800 books will be gifted.
Kiwanis Belleville purchases and prepares books for distribution by Belleville, Tweed, Kente & Trenton Kiwanis Clubs.
Jr Kindergarten teachers are familiar with the book, their comment is " the children love the book" - it appears that when they open their goody-bag, this book readily gets their attention!
"Children who are not yet reading will enjoy following along and even chiming in as an adult or older child reads aloud. Sharing reading in this way is one of the best and most pleasurable introductions to reading independently."
Kiwanis Belleville is pleased to include THE NIGHT BEFORE KINDERGARTEN books in our programs for Belleville area schools.
