I am a new teacher and I am teaching kindergarten so I need books! Are they any must haves that you think I need for myself or kids. Also if anyone wants to donate books or if you know someone wanting to donate childrens books let me know thanks!

Good luck on your first year! Imogene's Antlers, Amelia Bedelia, and lots of ABC books (like Shiver Me Letters: a Pirate's ABCs) are great. I hope this helps!

I'd suggest Level One books from any of the following series:  Hello Reader!,  An I Can Read , Ready-to-Read, Step Into Reading, Puffin Easy-to-Read

Any low level holiday books to read around the holidays.  Students of K-1-2 seem to love Clifford, Mercer Mayer, Amelia Bedelia, Curious George, Berenstain Bears.  A personal favorite of mine is Polar Express to be read.
