These moose books for kindergarten include leveled readers kids can read independently as well as books they’ll love hearing you read aloud.
In kindergarten, children are at different reading levels. Some children come into kindergarten already reading short books. Others are still struggling to learn sight words and sound out words phonetically.
When gathering books for kindergarten aged children, it’s important to offer a variety of books to reach all of your children where they are.
When I teach a theme, I love to add books on related topics whenever possible. I leave some lying around to pique my kids’ interest. Other times, I save the book to read to them before I add it to the bookshelf.
Either way, I want my kids to see me reading, hear me reading, and watch me get excited about books all the time!
I love finding good books to share with my kiddos. I especially love finding books to fit our current theme.
The moose books featured here will fit in your moose theme, your forest theme, and your letter Mm themes.
Where will you add them in?
If You Give a Moose a Muffin – If a big hungry moose comes to visit, you might give him a muffin to make him feel at home. If you give him a muffin, he’ll want some jam to go with it. When he’s eaten all your muffins, he’ll want to go to the store to get some more muffin mix…
There Are No Moose on This Island! – Jake’s excited about going on a trip to an island, and he really, really, really wants to see a moose. But his dad insists that there are no moose on this island.
However, both Jake and a friendly moose would like to disagree!
Moose’s Book Bus – When Moose runs out of stories to tell his family after dinner, he ventures to the town library for books.
No sooner is he settled in at home to read them aloud than Bear, Badger, Fox, Hare, Mole, the Three Wild Pigs, and even the Beavers crowd in to listen. Soon everyone is packed in like sardines.
What’s a clever Moose to do?
Morris the Moose – The cow, the deer, and the horse have four legs and a tail, just like Morris. But none of these animals is a moose! These different animals have one thing in common—their friendship.
Morris Goes to School – Morris the Moose can’t read or count, so he decides to go to school. After a day of ABCs and 123s, Morris is thrilled with all that he has learned.
This Moose Belongs to Me – Wilfred is a boy with rules. He lives a very orderly life. It’s fortunate, then, that he has a pet who abides by rules, such as not making noise while Wilfred educates him on his record collection.
There is, however, one rule that Wilfred’s pet has difficulty following: Going whichever way Wilfred wants to go. Perhaps this is because Wilfred’s pet doesn’t quite realize that he belongs to anyone.
A moose can be obstinate in such ways. Fortunately, the two manage to work out a compromise. Let’s just say it involves apples.
What About Moose? – When Fox, Toad, Bear, Porcupine, and Skunk set out to build a treehouse, they know just what to do: they’ll follow a plan and they’ll work as a team.
But when bossy Moose barges in and upends their plans with some of his own, his friends become more and more frustrated…until things go hilariously awry!
Ernest the Moose Who Doesn’t Fit – Ernest is a rather large moose with a rather large problem. He is so big he can’t fit inside his book!
Luckily, Ernest is also a very determined moose, and he and his little chipmunk friend aren’t going to give up easily.
With some tape, odd bits of paper, and plenty of enthusiasm, the pair constructs an enormous gatefold page by themselves, and everything fits together in the end.
Elusive Moose – Travel to the northern lands to search for the elusive moose hidden in every scene of this charming book. You’ll learn about the animals and the changing seasons in no time with the informative notes at the end.
I Met a Moose in Maine One Day – A boy and a moose become fast friends. Together, boy and beast play hide-and-seek (not the best game for a moose), walk to the general store, then take a tour of Maine.
They fly about in a seaplane, they run the Penobscot River on a raft made of logs, they hang out on a dock in Camden, and they finish off with some chocolate moose cake at a cafe in Portland!
Moose on the Loose – What would you do with a moose on the loose? Would you chase him, or race him, or stand up to face him?
What would you do with a moose on the loose? What would you do with a moose in your yard? Or in your house? How about in your room? Or in your tub?
Would you give him two boats? Would you see if he floats? What would you do?
Morris and Borris at the Circus – Morris the Moose has never been to the circus, so his friend Boris takes him there. When the ringmaster invites Morris to be part of the show, the fun begins for everyone—except poor Boris!
