Picture Book Read Aloud List for Kindergarten

I put together this picture book list for my daughter who is starting Junior Kindergarten.  I typically read a picture book to her each day at bedtime so this list should last about a year.  I looked through Sonlight, Winter Promise, Five in a Row, livingmath.net, and Caldecott books to compile a list.  I have a few books on this list, but most books will be reserved in bunches from the library.  I’ve included books in the categories of literature, rhyming books (lots of Dr. Seuss), history, geography, science, and math.
