Ninety-eight percent of my kindergarten students have not had any preschool experience, nor have they had exposure to many age appropriate books for them to look at or read. This is not uncommon for families living in our area of California, which is predominately low income families. Their curiosity about books and their content is obvious, as I see this when I read them a short story. However, their personal experience with books was never so obvious as when I asked them to bring their favorite book to class so that she/he could tell their classmates about it. Out of 27 students, only 5 children brought a book to class. Three of the books (all were leveled for advanced readers) were recently purchased, and the students admitted that the book had not been read to them. The other two books were also much too advanced for the children. Although the students had some idea about the content, each had difficulty retelling the story.
