Education experts agree: the first years of a child's education are crucial to lifetime educational achievements. Parents and teachers have known this instinctively for years--the fact that What Your First Grader Needs to Know remains the bestselling Core Knowledge title is solid proof--and in response to their repeated requests, Doubleday is proud to offer What Your Kindergartner Needs To Know. The latest volume in the phenomenally successful Core Knowledge Series, which has more than one million copies in print in hardcover alone, features eighty pages of vibrant, full-color illustrations and a user-friendly design--specifically created for parents and teachers to use with kindergarten-age children.
Based on E.D. Hirsch's realization that much of the decline in America's educational standards has occurred because vague "skills," not information, are taught in the primary grades, it emphasizes fundamental knowledge in math, science, art, history, language arts, geography, and technology. E.D. Hirsch and the staff of the Core Knowledge Foundation worked with more than two thousand parents and teachers to create a book that children will enjoy while they learn.
