    I thought I would enjoy this one than I actually did Don't get me wrong; it's a cute book But the whole royal gimmick seems kind of unnecessary and aimed at adults than kids and with a child who has a different understanding of what being king means the premise could be potentially problematicThe narration is a bit odd to begin with It almost sounds like it's one of the parents talking to the child but both parents are referred to in the third person so it's obviously somebody else Who? I have no idea The boy wakes up and goes about getting ready for school This part of the book makes references to Chiclets and Osh Kosh as if all 4 and 5 years olds are going to understand what those signify Then the boy is off to schoolThe problem I see with telling a child that they're the King of Kindergarten is that if they have an idea of a king as someone who issues orders and expects to be obeyed they're going to be in for a rough first day In the case of this book being king refers to mastery than it does ruling but I don't know if children this young are going to have such a nuanced view of royalty The boy in the story is kind polite generous and thoughtful which are all great things to model But it makes me wonder if the whole king thing is even necessary since it might add a bit of confusion to what is otherwise a sweet story about the first day of school Making him a knight rather than a king might have made sense in this contextI might have some problems with the text but I don't really have any issues with the illustrations They're absolutely adorable The boy and his classmates are all portrayed with bright colourful diversity This is the third book I've read that was illustrated by Brantley Newton and I think I like the illustrations here the bestOverall I think whether this book works for kids will depend on their concept of what a king is For those who think it's all about power it might not work But for those who have an expanded concept of what it means to be a king this could be a winneruotable moment

You round out the day with some musical fun and then you're back on the bus for home Lots of adventures await this year with your fellow kindergartners; the King most definitely approves of school I like Derrick Barnes's clever wordplay and Vanessa Brantley Newton's illustrations fit it perfectly The King of Kindergarten is a lift for one's spirits before starting anything new a reminder that a confident kid is halfway to success before they step out the front door The story brims with positivity praising good values that establish a friendly rapport with peers I think The King of Kindergarten is better than Crown An Ode to the Fresh Cut fitting as a Newbery Honor selection even though I probably wouldn't have given either book a Newbery I might rate The King of Kindergarten two and a half stars and you can bet I'll be back for of Derrick Barnes He never fails to entertain

    I read Derrick Barnes' award winning picture book Crown An Ode to the Fresh Cut and absolutely loved it so I wasn't surprised to enjoy another picture book written by him What I love about Derrick Barnes is that he places young black male characters at the forefront of his work Everyone needs to see themselves in books and Derrick Barnes has a way of using his books to build confidence in his readers This book focuses particularly on a young boys first day in kindegarten and how he should view himself as a king This is not meant to illustrate that he is better than anyone else but that in being a king he has a level of self confidence that will help him be successful and make lots of friends I loved the artwork and can't wait to see what Derrick Barnes has in store for readers in the future

The King of Kindergarten will encourage every little one who is getting ready for their first day of kindergarten and it might even get their parents ready too What I loved most about this book was that it was clear that this little boy’s parents clothed him with so much love joy encouragement and a positive self image It is something that he carries with him in his heart and mind throughout his day It is made evident in each of Vanessa Brantley Newton’s illustrations that he exudes unuestionable confidence You can see it in his smile and in the way he keeps his head held highI highly recommend The King of Kindergarten for families kindergarten classrooms and the library school and public libraries Honestly I added this book to my 2019 2020 library order before I’d even read it because of how much I enjoyed Crown an Ode to the Fresh Cut that won all manner of awards Newbery Honor Award Coretta Scott King Honor Award and the 2018 Ezra Jack Keats Award Trust your librarians We have a knack for finding great books like this one for families and classrooms to enjoy
