best preschool books for letter Kk

Here are our favorite preschool books for the letter Kk!  We love visiting the library and finding new books each week! Reading takes a huge priority in our home — we like to read every morning, noon, and night!  Children will love to read if we give them the tools — I hope this list is helpful to you!


My four year old son is incorporating beginning sounds with words all the time — and the reason is because he reads.  We read together, and he reads on his own.  Even looking at the pictures, generating the storyline in his head, and looking at letters — this is reading.  Reading opens a world of imagination and creativity for our children.

We are still floating through the alphabet, though in a more relaxed way, and one of the main reasons why we focus on one letter at a time is to find new books from our home library or city’s library.  I will usually collect a small stack of books and read them at breakfast time and try to emphasize the beginning of words. We cycle through the small stack throughout the week during meal or other quiet times in the day. This is a fun way to read new books and reinforce some beginning sound phonics work.

Reading benefits a child’s mind, a child’s speech, a child’s life. You can read more about why reading is one of the most important things you can do with your baby or child at 10 reasons to read to your child.  And I am making a preschool list for all of our favorite books from A to Z.  I hope you and your child enjoy our children’s books selections for letter Jj!

Koala Lou by Mem Fox is the sweetest story about a small child, Koala Lou, who begins to get worried when her mother gets busy.  She sets out to win a competition to win her mother’s attention, as she yearns for her mother’s affections most of all.  A lovely book that is paired with gorgeous colored-pencil drawings.  Koalas are my absolute favorite so I am very partial to this adorable book.

Kiss for Little Bear by Elise Holmelund Minarik is the sweet story of Little Bear who sends a picture to his grandmother.  She sends back a kiss as a thank you and the kiss passes along from animal to animal.  We absolutely love the sweet innocence of all of the Little Bear books.

Katy and the Big Snowby Virginia Burton is an absolute classic.  Katy is not sent out unless it really, really… really snows.  And alas, all of the smaller snow trucks break down and she must plow the whole town and save the day.  Ms. Burton has written a perfect children’s book with beautiful, repetitive text.

Kitten’s First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes is one of those books that you just have to feel and touch in person.  The illustrations, in all black and white are just magnificent.  They are so vibrant, they seem to jump out at you.  Kitten searches for her first full moon and keeps finding it in the most unexpected places.  A delight for any young child.

The Berenstain Bears and the Big Red Kiteby Jan and Stan Berenstain is the story about Brother and Sister Bear who long for the store-bought kites that their friends have for the kite flying competition.  Papa Bear teaches them that making your own projects can produce pride and satisfaction with hard work.  We love the Berenstain Bears and their over-enthusiasm about everything :)

The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn School starts with Chester Raccoon who is reluctant to go to school for the first time.  His mother shares that he will always have her kiss with him.  Oh this book will make you tear up, or just sob when you read it, so read with a box of tissues handy! It is so lovely and heartfelt.

I’m (Almost) Always Kind by Anna Milbourne Being kind is super important, but it isn’t always easy. Using a good-hearted, enthusiastic little boy’s perspective, a lot of sensitivity, and a little gentle humor, this story explores the potential pitfalls of trying to be kind and what being kind really means. To be truly kind, it turns out, you have to try to look at things from other people’s points of view. Gorgeous laser cut holes emphasize the meaning and the feelings of the characters, accumulating as the pages are turned to show how kindness can spread from person to person until all the world is full of kindness!
