The Day the Crayons Came Home - Drew Daywalt, Oliver Jeffers

The Day the Crayons Came Home has always been one of my favorite books to not only read, but to also listen to. It is such a fun and engaging book that will keep the attention of kindergartners. I would use this book to introduce the importance of keeping up with your materials. This is a great book to read at the beginning of the year to remind students that they are responsible for all of the belongings. This will help children to become responsible and take care of their items.
